Daily Bookshot: Vintage Capote…

Vintage Capote…, originally uploaded by Robert Burdock.

…but not quite ‘vintage’ enough!

It’s not every day that one picks up a 1967 edition of Truman Capote’s seminal work of literary journalism, In Cold Blood but last week one of those days when I strolled into a 2nd-hand shop and waltzed away (quite literally) with this delicious copy. This edition may have been published in the same year I was born (do the maths folks, and it’s my birthday in less than three weeks too :)), but how I wish that this copy were one year older, and published by Random House. Oh well, I’m sure one may turn up one day. For now, I’m delighted to own this one.

About Rob

Rob, a self-confessed bibliophile, is without any hope of rehabilitation. He gets unnaturally excited over anything book-shaped, and if book sniffing were a crime then he would have been locked up years ago (which wouldn't bother him in the slightest provided his cell was lined with books).
