Satu Kaikkonen sa...

this i liked;

it made me a little bit sad, i don't know why,

'haurasta'

troylloyd sa...

yes, the acidic pages were brittle & fragile as you say & you see especially the one page with many holes.

it is kind of sad, the erasure of print from the pages, even books are not permanent, there is a certain joy in the transitory nature of life,

a song i heard once, maybe it was by Death in June, they sing: "the death of everything we love shall be a beautiful thing" & i find that irony to be true.

Stephen Nelson sa...

Kind of a wabi sabi quality:

paper thin
rip and rend
leaf leafing leafless

or

paper skin
patch and mend
sheaf sheafing sheafless
