    Collecting the Works of Philip Pullman

    Wed, 23 May 2018 08:00:00 Permalink
    Collecting the works of a present-day author is appealing to many collectors. For starters, if the author is alive, a collector’s chance of meeting him or her in person is significantly higher than if the author was dead. Likewise, he or she may be putting more signed books into the world, just waiting to be scooped up by a diligent collector. Living authors may hold speaking events, book signings, etc. which are great opportunities for collecting ephemera. And, if the author in question is still publishing new work, then a collector can still feel the thrill of adding yet-to-be-seen titles Read More

    After a week in Cork we headed to Sherkin Island, a windswept jewel of a place just off the southern coast of West Cork. Just to maintain a professional aspect to the trip, I stopped in to see Holger at The Time Traveller’s Book Shop in Skibbereen. But he wasn’t there, so we ate at the Church Restaurant instead. The sun was warm; the beer was cold. Then on to the Port of Baltimore and the ferry to Sherkin where our dear old friends Kathy and Mike run an an event centre called Sherkin North Shore – sort of a Read More

    What We're Reading - May 17

    Thu, 17 May 2018 12:02:00 Permalink
    I am reading a monograph on Lionel Feininger, the German painter, fifty of whose early canvases were trapped behind the Iron Curtain for much of the 20th century. I am also reading Voltaire‘s fable The Princess of Babylon. As a diversion, I just began Lucia in London, by E. F. Benson.--KamAt lunch today at Amy and Sean’s place, the discussion ranged from real estate adventures in Snohomish County to Marcel Proust, a favorite of fellow guest, Kam.  My bookish allusion was to Philip Levine’s collection What Work Is (Knopf 1991; winner of the National Book Award), wherein may be found Read More

    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
