So it's no secret to those who know me well that I LOVE antique hymn books, the one above is my newest one. I try not to pay more that $5 per book. How sweet that Pearl Clements and May Clements signed their names in this one.And look how Mary Etta Clements put a line under her name with a ruler! Too cute.I actually do use these in my artwork, nothing like an original hymn page to spice up your work. My favorite book is this Ira D. Sankey book called "Sacred Songs and Solos". The fonts and pages are beautiful, if you ever see one of these I highly recommend you pick it up, as long as the price is right. They can be found on ebay sometimes. I used pages from this book to line my hutch in my dining room.
So what are you obsessing about today?
