A Journey Round My Skull


Will, the proprietor of the biblio-blog A Journey Round My Skull, describes his online venture as “unhealthy book fetishism from a reader, collector, and amateur historian of forgotten literature.” Which is pretty accurate though we’re gonna politely disagree on the unhealthy part. Last we checked, preserving and disseminating gorgeous “avant garde for the poor,arcane children’s literature and bizarre Japanese woodblock prints (like the awesome Utagawa Kuniyoshi piece up above) didn’t lead to the diabetes or rickets or anything like that. And it actually makes us feel pretty hale and hearty. Check out more of Will’s picks after the jump, with links to his original blog posts.
