The 56th California International Antiquarian Book Fair


I went to the 56th California International Antiquarian Book Fair and saw some amazing stuff (All are first editions):

First Bible Concordance in English-1550

Shakespeare's Third Folio-1685

First Edition of Gone With the Wind, signed by all the major cast members from the movie

And I love seeing the non-book things that are there:

1971 Peanuts TV Cell

An appointment by President Abraham Lincoln

An early drawing by Dr. Seuss

Original music to the theme from Casino Royale

R.Crumb original drawing

I always love seeing the cool things that are for sale there, the only thing is that I can't afford them. LOL.

Just a Little Walk-Seattle Style


I went for a little walk around Seattle's waterfront and the cool thing was I got to see the clouds disappear and the sun come out:

I always enjoy walking around and seeing new things in my travels.

Public Art at Yerba Buena Gardens


I was walking at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco and saw these cool stars on the lightposts around the place. I thought it was so cool and artsy:

Sometimes the simplest things are the coolest.
