I am in love with books: the content, the structure, and the binding. Books, when everything goes well, are the perfect combination of my love of literature and decorative arts.
I’m a former antiquarian bookseller, archivist, and rare book librarian. I got to play with and talk about the best books in the world every day.
However, I didn’t realize until recently that something was missing. I dedicate this blog to those unintentionally responsible for my revelation: an auction house, a man with a vision, and a bookbinder.
This blog is not about them or my work. It is a chronicle of my investigations into contemporary designer bookbinding in the Americas. I don’t know what I will find. I don’t even know if what I write will be technically accurate. I do know that it will be fun.
