One day I ended up in a a second-hand bookshop – I don’t remember why. Maybe it started raining and I was in need of shelter? Maybe I saw an ex-boyfriend I needed to escape from? Anyways, I entered the store, and right in front of me I was greeted by this book: Painted Ponies – the history of american carousel art. I couldn’t believe it. This book contains everything I love: Ponies, fairgrounds, creepy atmosphere pictures and unnecessary knowledge. If there was a chapter about flourless chocolate cakes, It would be complete.
