“Those darling byegone times, Mr Carker,” said Cleopatra, “with their delicious fortresses, and their dear old dungeons, and their delightful places of torture, and their romantic vengeances, and their picturesque assaults and sieges, and everything that makes life truly charming! How dreadfully we have degenerated!” #Dickens #DombeyandSon • • #socobooks #usedcollectibleunique #southcongressbooks #charlesdickens #shakespeare #bookends #miniaturebooks

🎈IT’S OUR 10th ANNIVERSARY! 🎈 Sheri, our buyer & half-owner, just found this apple seed in this 1909 #gulliverstravels. Once upon a time, this bookstore was but a seed of an idea but 10 years ago this month, it became a reality. South Congress Books’ grand opening was July 9, 2011. To celebrate, from July 15-31 wish us HAPPY BIRTHDAY at checkout (or with your online etc. orders) to get a 10% discount. Yay us! Yay you! 🎂🎉 • • #socobooks #usedcollectibleunique #southcongressbooks #happybirthdaytous

“There wasn't really a point to making one more recipe book, because there are just so many out there. So the idea here was: how do we tell a more engaging story about food? Which for me was spending a ridiculous amount of time with chefs. Maybe this is a book that's more about cooking and the idea of food, the nature of food, getting people to understand food at another creative level. Hopefully this will introduce people to the creativity behind this food beyond what they could get from a recipe or a finished plate when you go into a great restaurant.” #JeffScott “Notes from a Kitchen,” volumes 1 & 2, by Jeff Scott and Blake Beshore. • • #socobooks #usedcollectibleunique #southcongressbooks #photography #food #cooking #notesfromakitchen #blakebeshore
