Both the book and bookmark are a lovely reminder of times gone by. I'm wondering who "Lucille" was and what the book has to say about her. Is it fiction, biography, autobiography or maybe even poetry?

Whatever it is, it is a precious souvenir of a time, place, and person that once was and is no longer. That's the magic of books

I've never heard of the book nor seen the art work before, but I'd really like the book for it's cover (they wouldn't be separated)!

I'm the Director of a historic library on Cape Cod, and we love old books...in fact I have a collection of found items that come from books that people return or donate to us. It's a wonderful glimpse into people's lives. I linked your blog on our staff blog so that others could enjoy it, too.

My name is Lucy, but teachers and others have always tried to change my name to Lucille. I think this book, illustration, and I would be good friends. :)

unmoderated said...

Lucy, can I come visit? I love Cape Cod.

Katie said...

Just beautiful!

What a charming book. I'm glad for the lucky person who won it. My Grandmother's name was Lucille. I didn't know that there was a book like this one.
