I’m officially finished with my second semester of library school,
so to celebrate, my girlfriend and I went for a little vacation at a nearby lakeside town. We stayed at this bed & breakfast called the Allyn Mansion, which was possibly the coolest place I’ve ever spent the night (and I’ve spent the night in some weird places).

I mean, it was built in 1886 — something scandalous has to have happened there in that time, right?
It was also perfect for book photography. I became a little obsessed with finding spots around the house where I could artistically arrange a book and a few antiques to create a nice photo op, like this one:
