I've been so busy getting ready for a trial that I don't think I would even notice if something came to my mailbox. But I have a short list for Mailbox Monday because I took a head-clearing break from drafting pleadings to walk to Powell's last Friday.
I must have been thinking of food (or maybe a different career) because I got these two books:
A Cordiall Water: A Garland of Odd and Old Receipts to Assuage the Ills of Man and Beast by M. F. K. Fisher
That's the cover on the copy I bought. It's very pleasant, but I would love to find an old edition with this cover:
Epicurean Delight: The Life and Times of James Beard by Evan Jones

I really enjoy different covers on books. I have several copies of some books for the different covers.ReplyDelete
The different covers are so interesting! Very different!ReplyDelete
I agree, the older cover makes it stand out. Is is bad luck to wish you luck with your trial?ReplyDelete
Sheila -- I like seeing how covers change with the decades. The trends are fun to track.ReplyDelete
Beth -- I love the bunny with a cocktail glass. I wonder if I can figure out a way to use that image for an Easter card? I am going to try.
Gwen -- It is not bad luck, so thank you! The trial doesn't start until the 15th, but it is a big case and there is a lot to get ready for.
