Down, Down, Down by DearPoetry Down, Down, Down by DearPoetry
Tumbling
Down, down, down,
I fall.
No one had the slightest idea,
what fancy courtesying
could manage.

A page out of a very old Alice in Wonderland book.

why ruin the book? why not scan the page and donate the book to charity if you don't want it. Way less wasteful and you can reuse the page.

Have you ever heard of an altered book?
Well--that's what I do. I bring these books back to life.
As for this one in particular, I got from an antique shop.
Pages were literally falling out and it had a little girls drawings all over many of the pages. I got it for about a dollar or to and am trying to restore/bring beauty back to the book. :)

I never use 'good' books. Only those I find that I know wont be read again.

Ah, I like these. But you knew that already.
I think it's really cool how you find these (:

But eh, what do you mean with "Let me learn lessons%u2014" you wrote in the middle of your poem in the artist comments? I'm pretty sure it's not in there.

Also, do you use a scanner for these or do you take photos of them? Probably a scanner, right?

This one was harder for me then my others.
Alice is written quite strangely, and that's exactly why we all love it so much, but still. XD

Thank you! :)
