As to the fifteenth-century books, I had noticed that they were always beautiful by force of the mere typography, even without the added ornament, with which many of them are so lavishly supplied....Looking at my adventure from this point of view then, I found I had to consider chiefly the following things: the paper, the form of the type, the relative spacing of the letters, the words, and the lines; and lastly the position of the printed matter on the page.

The Yellow Wallpaper By Charlotte Perkins Gilman
eBook (ePub): $0.00
It is very seldom that mere ordinary people like John and myself secure ancestral halls for the summer. A colonial mansion, a hereditary estate, I would say a haunted house, and reach the height of... More > romantic felicity — but that would be asking too much of fate! Still I will proudly declare that there is something queer about it. Else, why should it be let so cheaply? And why have stood so long untenanted? John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage. John is practical in the extreme. He has no patience with faith, an intense horror of superstition, and he scoffs openly at any talk of things not to be felt and seen and put down in figures. John is a physician, and perhaps — (I would not say it to a living soul, of course, but this is dead paper and a great relief to my mind) — perhaps that is one reason I do not get well faster. You see he does not believe I am sick!< Less

More > tendency to hope, desire, foresee and then, if possible, obtain, has been largely diverted from human usefulness since our goal was placed after death, in Heaven. With all our hope in "Another World," we have largely lost hope of this one. Some minds, still keen in the perception of better human possibilities, have tried to write out their vision and give it to the world. From Plato's ideal Republic to Wells' Day of the Comet we have had many Utopias set before us, best known of which are that of Sir Thomas More and the great modern instance, "Looking Backward."..."< Less

We had some bird's-eyes of the cities and parks; a lot of lovely views of streets, of buildings, outside and in, and some of those gorgeous gardens, and, most important of all, of the women themselves. Nobody will ever believe how they looked. Descriptions aren't any good when it comes to women, and I never was good at descriptions anyhow. But it's got to be done somehow; the rest of the world needs to know about that country."< Less

They will not be wanted, I can tell them that, and will fare worse than we did if they do find it."< Less
Chesterville Center Union Meeting House an Evening of Poetry Readings By Poets, Chesterville Center Union Meeting House
eBook (ePub): $6.00
"More poets than one might guess — both published and yet-to-be-discovered — lurk in the hollows and hills of Chesterville. On October 9, 2015, the first Chesterville Poetry Night on... More > record was held at the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House. Chesterville poets and their admirers gathered in the time-honored community space to share truth and beauty, wit and wisdom. Several present-day artists read their own works, while works of a few authors from the town's past were read by current residents. This little volume is the result of the generosity of the Poetry Night artists and the hard-working volunteers behind the non-profit Meeting House. We hope it will preserve part of the spirit of that evening. Our even greater hope is that it will inspire more poetry and poets to emerge from the hidden reaches of Chesterville."100% of all sales is donated to the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House organization.< Less
