a child's garden of verses

i love this book! any edition of a child's garden of verses is pretty magical...although i don't know many children who would be interested in the style of these poems these days. we are out there though! you know who you are. i was definitely one of those 'odd' children. i think these books are mostly appreciated for their aesthetic value. this one is particularly lovely. so very '20s. the endpapers are amazing! the illustrated borders are so whimsical and pleasing. all around a loved book (even if the cover is a bit blurry).
