I found The Lost World at Project Gutenberg, a collection of free online ebooks of works of literature whose copyrights have expired, allowing them to be free for all to read.
Project Gutenberg reminds me of The Book People from Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury). In a world where books were forbidden and wantonly destroyed, they memorised entire novels for posterity, so that someday, they might be rewritten. The people of Project Gutenberg are like a version of The Book People for our world, volunteers who read and retype famous works onto the internet, so that they can be available at the click of a mouse to anyone who has access to the internet, making sure these cultural classics remain a part of the digital age.
The top is a Peace Angel one found at a Vintage shop when I met up with one of my friends the other week.
The skirt was found at a charity shop on the same day.
Fair Trade earrings from a hippie shop. The stones are garnet, probably my favourite stone.
Necklace from second hand shop.
Detail of the ruffle on the skirt. I love it so much!
