When sourcing materials to make the handcrafted items I sell as The Forgotten Library I often find fascinating books, diaries and paper ephemera. This blog aims to share some of the treasures I have found. From diaries to drawings, poetry to pictures and recipes to writings. I hope you will enjoy these glimpses into history as much as I have. Together with anecdotes about my experiences as a small craft business the blog gives a little insight into life at The Forgotten Library.
