Thanks, James. I've been to the Bienes - wonderful collection! I'll check
out the other sources you recommended.

Okay, more specifically, I'm looking for old hand-crafted books that
combine text & images, preferably made by amateur artists. My research is
going in the direction of women's use of alternative forms of discourse
through hand-crafts, like scrapbooks, so I'm looking for grandmother's
travel journal or Aunt Ida's scrapbook. Most of what I've found are from
professional book artists or just aren't that old.

I've lived in Florida for 38 years, so I know what you mean. It's just when
you are looking for something "antique" that usually means the 1960s down
here, at least that's been my own experience.
