Our favourite romantic book for this year, ‘A Fairytale Told’.
Remember those films where a pistol was concealed in an old book with its pages stuck together and hollowed out?
Forget that, this book concealed something much more beautiful – a ring! Thirty two pages of poetry telling the story of a courtship and romance, bound on top of a weighty tome and covered in deep red cloth with gold blocking to the front and spine. As the last page was turned the ring was revealed, set into a specially made recess at the back of the book.
By the way that isn’t the actual ring, we’re certain that would have been much more sparkly, but we had to make sure it fitted and we couldn’t resist a game of pretend.
Of course what we’re all dying to know, how did the fairytale end?
