I love finding old things in books. Like my pals at Forgotten Bookmarks, I’ve decided to share some of the neat ephemera I find. I’ve been doing this for years, actually, and making card collages of ephemera in a series I call Lost in a Good Book. So here’s to a new format for that series.
Today’s feature is a nice art book titled John Marin by John Marin, edited by Cleve Gray (Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1977, first edition).

from nature except when nature s sick
my picture worries me those we love worry us.

I think I’ll just leave the note in the book for the next owner.
