Bodleian Libraries: Book Spines Great Girls (Foiled Journal)
This beautiful journal features Bodleian Libraries: Book Spines Great Girls. This charming trio of book spines are just three examples of the brightly-coloured story anthologies from the 1930s in the Bodleian Library's collection.
Featuring cheerful illustrations of sporting, spirited girls ready for adventure, they are tangible evidence of the slow and steady social progress of the era, and the new freedoms and opportunities afforded to many women.
The covers are printed on foil in five colours, embossed, then foil stamped. And they're powerfully practical: a pocket at the back for receipts and scraps, two bookmarks and a solid magnetic side flap.
