I wonder where Farrah is, and how old she is.

That it's an Edward Gorey illustrated bookmark from the Gotham Book Mart makes it all the sweeter.

An illustrator I loved as a kid is paired with one I love now.

That really dates that book. Farrah Fawcett-Majors.

Anyway, I just stumbled upon your blog and it is so cool.

I love that you managed to find something beautiful and ... sort of sentimental, shall we say, in your job that you can share with others.

Anyway, awesome blog.
Keep at it!

I find this genuinely interesting. It's the first post I've read, just noting you've made Blogs of Note. As a book lover and bookmark lover, I am entranced and will read on.

Wow - that's quite a find! A bookmark with Farrah's name, and a special old book. Pretty neat, especially with Farrah's tragic death this year.

Amazing! I LOVE this book and I'm SO glad I found your blog! Farrah's passing on June 25th of this year was very tragic...she was only 62. Cancer is a horrible thing!

*Love* your blog!
