this is from a real diary by a 13-year-old girl in 1870. teenage girls are awesome and they’ve always been that way.
This is great, where is it from?
this specific excerpt I found in a children’s book full of diaries by young American women but the author is Martha Carey Thomas, who helped to found Bryn Mawr. Index says it’s selected from “The Making of a Feminist,” ed. Marjorie Houspian Dobkin.

The sarcasm in this…. It is AMAZING
Your friendly neighborhood librarian here to remind you that in an era of mass market production, it is ok to destroy books. I even made a purse out of one.
Keep in mind, books were repurposed even when they were hand copied. Paper was rare so the vellum would be scraped and reused. Or even torn apart and used in making the unseen parts of books hidden by the spine.
People made art on books. Not just illuminated texts. They drew elaborate rude drawings in the margins (paper WAS rare and people got bored) which is how we know today about medieval fellatio techniques and anal sex. I personally feel historic religious texts are much improved by this art.
One of my friends incorporated paper roses made from my books into her wedding bouquet.
Art from books is AWESOME.
Art from books is awesome. You can’t deny the skill that produced these.
Loving the art that came from it doesn’t mean I can’t also feel a little sad about the book itself though. No need to be so black and white about it.
Oh, absolutely. It’s sort of like customizing dolls, for me. When I see someone do a custom Dance Class Lagoona (an ultra-common doll), I cheer. When I see someone do a custom G1 MLP Mimic (an ultra-rare that I have never been able to acquire), I weep.
Just for perspective, though, I think we have to remember that mass market paperbacks are the level 1 Pokemon of the book world. They’re infinite, at least when they’re new.
