A Collection a Day #66 – Big Little Books, originally uploaded by Cool and Collected.
Big Little books or BLBs have a pretty solid collecting base. Personally, I have a love-hate relationship with them.
I love the size and shape, and the graphics are fantastic, but I really hate how fragile these are. I’m afraid to handle many of these books for fear that their covers or spines will unhinge in my hands, and the paper used for the pages is sometimes so brittle that they crumble a little with the slightest touch.
I have quite a few of these without any covers or spines and would love to find a way to reuse the pages since the books aren’t so exciting when they are in pieces.
I have collected so many different things that I thought it would be fun to try and photograph a collection a day and see how far I can get.
