Bibliophile


…these potatoes have as much the flavour of a Moor Park apricot as the fruit from that tree. It is an insipid fruit at the best. - Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
He needed no further reason to dislike Cleopatra: intelligent women who had better libraries than he did offended him on three counts.—Stacy Schiff, Cleopatra: A LifeShe jerked away from me like a startled fawn might, if I had a startled fawn and it jerked away from me. -Raymond Chandler
Breakfast in bed this morning was a little decadent, but starting off on a happy note makes the rest of the day go that much smoother. And I love Zadie Smith’s book reviews for Harper’s.
*Images by Juliette Tang

Cannot believe I only stumbled upon Juliette Tang's most amazing collection of book photography today! I am in love with her juxtaposition of images and quotes, and how she illuminates the aesthetic front of a shared literary obsession.

You can see her tumblr here and flickr here.
