It’s one thing to do this to books that are destroyed, it is another thing to do it to books that LOOK BRAND FUCKING NEW OH MY GOD WHY.
THE HORROR. Why would anyone do that?
is this what circumcision without anesthesia feels like
oh god now it’s on tumblr
this is illegal, right?
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING. THIS IS NOT OKAY.
LETS GO OVER THIS ONE TIME: IT IS NOT OKAY TO CUT UP VINTAGE THINGS FOR YOUR OWN CRAFT PROJECTS. DON’T GO TO THRIFT STORES AND BUY VINTAGE DRESSES TO ‘REMIX’ THEM OR CUT UP VINTAGE BOOKS or any books for that matter, god damn
Vintage things are part of history, and they’re amazing parts of history because you can read vintage books and you can wear vintage clothes and through that you can experience history in ways that you can’t, and if you simply focus on making it “better” or making it “yours,” you are not only destroying this chance for yourself, but for everyone else.
