why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain

As it’s National Library Week, we thought we’d have a little root around in our Out Of Print Library in Oxford to see if we could find an old bookish treasure that our library is keeping safe. And look! What a cover! This is our 1962 edition (we believe) of The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus, translated by Harry Carter. Mega swoon.
