Saw this pic, found the link to the book bag. I love museum and library stores. :D
"Before the advent of dust-jackets many books, especially those for children, were bound in brightly coloured cloth with pictorial blocking in gold and colours, here a splendid shelf of colourful books from the Bodleian's Opie collection appear on this sturdy bag."
Someday, maybe, ah, who knows. I'd love to have a cloth-bound children's book made, with gold letters and such. But even Books of Wonder couldn't quite pull off that feeling of a turn-of-the-century book with their re-issued OZ series.
Lost arts. Well, we can dream and make facsimiles. :)
