One of the gems I picked up at a flea market outside Paris a few weeks ago. Five minutes after we arrived I spotted it. I tried to negotiate with the vendor a little (he gave in a little, but not too much), then walked away only to find myself picking it up a couple minutes later. I just knew I'd be sad if I didn't leave with it. The cover is stunning in both color and design and the inside is actually in excellent shape too. What a find! This is how I get my thrills people :)
