"Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever." #BaronMunchausen . We're crazy for this #gustavedore-illustrated #finebinding edition of #theadventuresofbaronmunchausen, and most particularly for this #illustration of the Baron himself. Maybe for #marbledmonday we'll post the cover and endsheets... . #SoCoBooks #books #bookstore #bookshop #instareads #instabooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #southcongress #austin #southcongressbooks #bibliophile #bookish #independentbookstore #atx #oldbooks #rarebooks #bookcollecting

Typing as it was taught in the 1940s. This method still works...keyboards have changed, and yet they haven't! But the return function can be a little different these days. And it wasn't until 1956 that Betty Nesmith Graham (mother of Monkee Michael) came up with White-Out...we pity the typists who never knew that product. . #typetuesday #greggtyping #howto #SoCoBooks #books #bookstore #bookshop #instareads #instabooks #bookstagram #bookshelf #southcongress #austin #southcongressbooks #bibliophile #bookish #independentbookstore #atx #oldbooks #rarebooks #bookcollecting

“I wanted to be a prophet because our maid did not eat with us. Because my father had a Cadillac. And, above all, because my Grandmother’s knees always ached.” #MarjaneSatrapi #Persepolis #TheStoryofaChildhood #signededition

No. Really, no. Don't even ask, because we definitely have no books about any #Beatles, individually or collectively. And if we did, this would scarcely cover a portion of the books we have...but we don't. Sorry. #musicbooks
