This scented leather pouch looks like a microphone, and “magically recreates the atmosphere of an old library inside a Venetian palazzo”, “conjuring the moment when one sinks into a large armchair and inhales the rich aroma of book bindings and burning candles.”
It costs $70.00 to do this, and why not? It’s a small price to pay for a microphone that allows you to speak to someone sitting in an armchair in a library in a Venetian palazzo. Here are some questions to ask them:
- What are you reading?
- Does it say anything about financial crises in your book?
- Do you sometimes feel a tinge of despair as you go about your daily affairs, and do you bury this feeling by focusing on an attractive face, say, or some silly trinket you buy?
- What is the meaning of all the suffering in the world?
- What lines of poetry do you find most consoling?
