BOOKWORM by Kat. R. Piller

I popped into 2 Op shops today, and came home with a few more knitting patterns and this tiny Selangor Pewter BOOKWORM. It is only 2cm high and I thought quite funny.

I was reading Her Library Adventures blog about Type Collections  and thought I'd photograph my little Bookworm on a couple of old books from our Ink Collection. Book one is a sample book of Printing Ink Colours from the U.S.A. and book two is a 1934 Stationery Price List and Catalogue from England. 100 pages of delicious Sundry Stationery and Filing  Devices for the Modern Office. (including of course, Ink Wells)
This page was a selection of Pins.  How many pins did one 1934 Office need? the catalogue has 3 pages full.
