Basket of Apples, Vase of Flowers, and Grapes
Skeleton Key Bowl
This bowl (2.5 in. high x 5 in. diameter) is perfect for the table where you empty your pockets, either near the door or on a dresser. I find that a bowl is easier to use as a collector of keys and spare pocket change than a tray. This bowl is covered in old skeleton keys, inspired in part by a fabric I saw as a lining in someone’s purse. In addition, my house has always had a ‘key bowl’, but never one with keys on it. I thought to myself, why not?*
Greetings, book friends! Some of you may have become acquainted with Corpus Libris over the last 5 years — when it started on a quiet night at Skylight Books in 2008, as it grew on Blogspot and Twitter, and as submissions came in from all over the world. It only seemed appropriate to breathe some new life into the project on Tumblr. You’ll revisit some photos you’ve seen before, you’ll see new ones, and hopefully, you’ll submit some yourselves!
All you have to do is click the red “Submit” button at the top of the page, select a photo, and for the caption, put the title of the book, the author(s), and where the photo was taken (either the bookstore/library/company, or the city). Or, if it’s easier for you, you can email corpuslibris AT gmail DOT com.
This project has been one of my biggest spots of joy over the last few years, and I’m excited to continue sharing it with all of you.
All the best,
CORPUS LIBRIS FOREVER!
