Still bummed after finding out last night.. a significant number of my Disney book collection has been ruined
Most of my books were still in boxes from our last move.. while I was waiting to get suitable bookshelves. Well we finally got some, and so most of this week I was spending evenings after work reorganizing the office so I had a decent space to keep my books handy. Well I finished last night, so I went down to the basement to start pulling books out.
Turns out something was on the floor (still don't know the true source.. foundation seepage or what) and found many of the books were swollen and flat out mold covered
Lost probably 30 Disney VHS tapes.. a collectors edition of the first star wars trilogy set in VHS that was mint.. numerous other minor tapes. And three of my large format Disney books that are all out of print. My Designing Disney by John Hench, the first Imagineering Book, and Designing Disney's Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance. All still reek of mildew to the point I can't even have them in the office
Just saddened by it all...
