Loranne's Adventures in Librarying

Books of a feather

Today we have a brand new find: bird feathers. I kid you not. There were three or four of them total, slipped between the pages of a volume on erotic photography–the title of which escapes me.

I identified at least two of the feathers. The first was roughly a foot long, from quill to tip, and I believe was a hawk’s feather. The second was a few inches shorter and looked to have once belonged to a turkey.

I’m not sure whether the fact that they were real makes more or less sense here. Nor do I really care to speculate on the connection between the subject matter of the book and the feathers themselves.
