I finally used my small collection of antique books in a vignette when I was re-decorating my bedroom this past week. I look for titles that I think would make good fireside reading in a cottage home, bonus if they have pretty gold lettering on the spines. The second and third pictures in this group show a book that I think is probably pretty special. It is inscribed to someone named Mattie Miller. And the inscription states that the book was given as a prize for having good writing in school. The book has a late 1800s copyright date, and is called, The Last Days of Pompeii. Seems like kind of a scary title for a young girl practicing her penmanship!  #lastdaysofpompeii #pompeii #antiquebooks #booksindecor #cottagestyle #cottagedecor #romantichomes #oldbooks #fleamarketstyle  #fleamarketfinds

☀️SUMMER PROJECT☀️ • I picked up these 5 gems in a charity shop today... Two of which I have read, one I started once and two I’ve always wanted to read! • Two of my summer projects were to: Paint more, and: Read more classics. All these have plain covers... SO, my grand plan is to paint my favourite scene from each one on the front. So excited to get stuck in - both with the story and paints!! Let’s see how it turns out... starting with The Last Days of Pompeii 🙊😍🙌🏻 • #art #illustration #artist #painting #plan #planning #classics #reading #books #scene #summer #summerproject #wutheringheights #prideandprejudice #lastdaysofpompeii #threemusketeers #scarlettletter #stories
#onthisdayinhistory at the @lacoliseum:  June 15, 1936- “The Last Days of Pompeii”, a pyrotechnic spectacular, premiered in front of a crowd of 13,000 at the Coliseum. Set to run for 11 nights, the event was sponsored by the Federated Church Brotherhood of California, an organization which benefited neglected young boys.  To kick off the night, a circus was set up on the Peristyle, featuring more than 500 performers and trained exotic animals inside of a staged amphitheater that had been designed to mimic the Colosseum in Rome. Complete with Japanese acrobats, Roman chariot races, high-wire performers, rodeo acts and even a series of ballet exhibits for extra entertainment, the excitement culminated in the stunning fireworks display that showed how the city of Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.  This performance was based on the movie by the same name that premiered in 1935. Over the years, there have been numerous screen adaptions, all of which have seen successful box office results. . . . . #lacoliseum #lastdaysofpompeii #colosseum #greateststadiumintheworld

Happy birthday to one of the most influential artists of all time and one of my top heroes of all time, the legendary Willis O'Brien. He wrote the book and set the bar for what great stop motion should be. Giant gorillas, dinosaurs, lost worlds, the man has done it all. Thanks for Kong and Joe, Obie, we'll never forget.  #willisobrien #obie #thelostworld #lostworld #kingkong #sonofkong #kong #mightyjoeyoung #she #thelastdaysofpompeii #lastdaysofpompeii #dancingpirate #itsamadmadmadmadworld #trog
Estamos en cuaresma, en esta época y hasta Semana Santa mis lecturas se dirigen a la antigua Roma, a Judea y a la vida de Jesús el Nazareno.

Demóstenes y Cicerón por Plutarco *Los últimos días de Pompeya por Edward Bulwer-Lytton *Historia de Roma por V. Diakov  También están en la foto las películas: "La Pasión de Cristo" y AC la Biblia continúa, la miniserie.  #quovadis #henryksienkiewicz #ultimatentacion #lasttemptation #roma #judea #vidasparalelas #plutarco  #nikoskazantzakis #losultimosdiasdepompeya #lastdaysofpompeii #edwardbulwerlytton #edwardbulwer #cuaresma  #vintage #vintagebook #vintagebooks
