Perhaps you recall that I mentioned Gabrielle Fox in the context of Neale Albert’s collection of miniature designer bindings. Well, guess what?

P.S. I’ll be in Boston all week. I’ll be hanging out with my best friend and editor, Sheri Galyean, binders Sonya Sheats, Jim Reid-Cunningham, and Jeff Altepeter at North Bennet Street School, before I return to my virtually all-consuming day job, the best bookish job ever: antiquarian bookseller. If you are in the Boston area, I encourage you to visit the Boston Antiquarian Book Fair. It is well worth your time. I probably won’t have time to blog, but follow me on twitter @americanbound, or keep an eye on my twitter feed on the right side of the page.
