Group Description

This group is for photographs of items found placed inside books. I would like to propose the following set of rules for this group:

1. The objects must be found in books bought used, or in library books. Items found in books bought new, or books borrowed from individuals, are excluded. In the description of your photograph, please state if the book is yours, or a library copy.

2. The person who placed the item in the book must be unknown to you. It is however acceptable, and indeed encouraged, to deduce the name of the person who placed the item in the book from such evidence as bookplates, signatures, etc.

3. Items which would as a matter of course be inserted into most or all copies of the book in question (errata slips, maps, etc.) are excluded.

4. No more than one photograph per month of a manufactured bookmark (i.e., an item expressly designed for the purpose of marking one's place in a book) may be posted; it is recommended that, in any case, photographs of such items be posted only if the item in question is particularly notable in some way.

5. It is in every way contrary to the ethos of this group to intentionally place an item inside a book so that it may later potentially be found by a stranger and photographed.
