Taking books to heart

I am surprised that I, a bibliophile, don’t know much about these just too cool books.  I knew of their existence, and the memory lingered in the back of my mind, but go now and have a look at the blog of the great artist Daniel Mitsui (his art makes great gifts), The Lion and the Cardinal.  He has several entries about “Cordiform Books” from earlier in October.  One entry is HERE.

    Yeah these things are great. My library (OSU Music) has a facsimile reproduction of the one he features, it’s a neat little book full of 15th c. chansons.

    This is too cool indeed. I did not know of their existence either.

    Great artist indeed and lovely books. Thank you Father. It will be a joy to spend a little time over there.
