Bound Captivation

Sometimes I find myself walking into second-hand book stores, being captivated by the older books, and admiring their beauty.

The fragility, The smell, and the detail is beautiful.
I'm sure the literature is also great, but what I admire most is its aesthetic. 
My Oscar Wilde book of selected poems (above) was bought for this reason, and as much as I love his poetry, the book itself is my favourite one in the bookshelf.
Watch the amazing process of the creation of these old books:
