Some of my 'large format' books, mostly art and photo essays:
And just in case you're curious in the plastic you see toward left end of top photo are two magazines from the 60s: 1 each Life and Look. i'm trying to protect them from further damage as the cover of the Life issue was already torn. Despite the sticker, i got them and many other things for maybe a total of $6. i suggested to the family members holding the sale they really should be going online to check values on some of the items as many were clearly collectibles and some in fair to good condition. But apparently they'd come in from out of state and just wanted to clear it all out. The parents had actually owned two houses side by side and one was used strictly for storage. Across from railroad tracks and 2 blocks from historic downtown Laramie, WY. It is fascinating what you learn when you are willing to engage people and ask questions. The Dad was like the first Black business owner in Laramie, belonged to many of the civic organizations. Probably in his 80s or 90s when he died as his daughters looked to be in their 60s. Many boxes were just placed in yard and had been pawed thru, sad as we've talked about before. The Life issue caught my eye first because i had worked for SCLC and met Mrs. King and she is one of my heroes. Incredibly kind, compassionate, intelligent woman.
