Rain Rain Rain & Books

We are ready for the rain to stop.  Tomorrow that is what is supposed to happen. We are going on a Kenai Fijords boat cruise for the day. Hoping to see lots of wild life. We will keep you posted. 

While in Homer we did quite a bit of walking the rain.  Happened on this amazing little quirky used book store. Packed to the rafters with every kind of literature. One sign for a nook with a category of "psychobabble, mumbojumbo, & hanky panky". Found a series of 1902 hard covers of Character Sketches from every book you can think of. 
Sorry about the orientation. Again iPad limitation. These gems had velum overlays on plates depicting the various stories being discussed. I really wanted to take all these home!

Also at the Pratt Museum there were hand made books with historical info in them on display. No real indication of who created them or when. They were rather worn and kind of funky.

So there you go, book arts in Alaska show up.
