I wish I could have shot this graffiti covered train while it was stopped rather than while it was whizzing past. I think the combination of type is pretty cool despite the slight blurriness of the photo.

I hereby declare you FINISHED!
Your pages are filled.
Your story is told.
The angels have sung your glory.
The final reflection has been recorded.
It's time for us to close the book on our nearly 18-month journey together and go our separate ways. You will find a safe place to rest among my greatest treasures, and I will find other (much, much, much smaller) books with which to play and alter.
Happy trails, my friend. Thanks for the memories.

This shot for Found Type Tuesday certainly describes how the days, weeks, and months have been for me lately. Every time I turn around it's Tuesday again and I realize I haven't posted anything since last Tuesday! Where does the time go?
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

If you are a long-time visitor to lost and found, you might recall a post I wrote about a little German book I was altering called Die schonsten Sagen des Rheins. You can read the original post here. My attempts at altering the book were disastrous and I came close to pitching it on several occasions. In spite of what I put it through, that little book hung in there and just wouldn't give up. When I was finally ready to add some text, The Optimist Creed seemed like an appropriate choice.
I actually finished altering the book a while ago, but the wonkiness of it makes it nearly impossible to photograph properly. I finally gave up and scanned it instead. I hope you enjoy viewing Die schonsten Sagen des Rheins in its entirety and reading The Optimist Creed. It's wonderful advice for everyone to live by.
