something old

While thumbing through the newspaper this morning an ad for the Lifeline Bookfest caught my eye. It starts this Saturday 19th January 2013 and goes through to Monday 28th January 2013 at the Brisbane Convention Centre. The books are mostly sorted and divided into three main price points, high quality and priced these two sections are usually where the new, rare and medium quality books can be found and the third section is the unpriced area and this is where the "well-thumbed" books are. While I enjoy all three areas I do enjoy fossicking through the unpriced area this is the area where bargains can be found but also books to later alter and use in mixed media creations. We spotted this cookbook by Margaret Fulton at a previous Bookfest and while the book is obviously well-thumbed we noticed that it had several bookmarks and discovered all these hand written notes and recipes were contained within, I've had a wonderful time scanning the handwritten notes, printing them onto fabric, using them in collage etc it's well worth having a look all three sections, you never know what you'll find.
