Visiting Skoob Books warehouse in Oxford, the 'Wall of Found' revealed many items which have been discovered inside second hand books.  These range from pressed flowers, bookmarks, postcards to photos of loved ones, tickets, stamps and a telegraph.  A very interesting collection and this article provides access to the collection we wouldn't ordinarily have.  Enjoy; feel free to comment and share your best finds.
