Suitcase Saturday

 Another wonderful Ross reproduction vintage suitcase - this one long and lean and full of vintage books that measure about the size of a postcard - the pocket books of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Many with leather covers, even some gold leaf here and there. Made for travelers, not quite as slim as a Kindle or a Nook, but definitely smaller than the full sized tomes.  Gathered from library book sales and many pleasant hours spent in  used book shops.

 Journey to Cairo

 I used one in this assemblage - one chapter was called "A Journey to Cairo".  I propped the book open in the middle of the chapter and gave the piece the same name.
