Big Stack of Antiquarian Books

Is there anything more beautiful than a giant stack of antiquarian books with vellum bindings? I think not.

vellum |ˈveləm|
noun
1. fine parchment made originally from the skin of a calf.
2. smooth writing paper imitating vellum.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from Old French velin, from veel (see veal).

I've repeated to myself 3 times, "Thou shalt not covet." Oooh, I do LIKE this stack of beautiful books.
