Season's Readings

This set of bogus books from the stacks at Letterology Library (with exception to this last gem from the NYPL Digital Gallery), are; spoiler alert; greeting cards posing as books. My most favorite is the one at top which is the first faux book-card I discovered years ago. After finding the next book-card at some forgotten post Christmas sale, this theme soon became a collection. The oldest in this series is the postcard shown directly above, and it is postmarked 1909. I find it rather odd that 3 out of 7 of the cards each have burning candles on their covers—a practice I would not recommend for books or cards.
      No matter the holiday celebration, sending greetings of joy is universal. I wish all of you a great Season's Readings and Joy, and I thank you for your continued support of Letterology; particularly over this past year. May you continue to stay inspired in whatever it is you do!
