More about this bookseller

Now the principal of 20 Ants Fine Books, I began selling books in 1995 as a sideline in a co-owned antiques and modern design open shop and also on CompuServe and Usenet in those early days of online bookselling. I formed 20 Ants Fine Books in 1998, selling online and by catalog to my customer list. I maintain an intentionally minimal stock of books I consider to be of merit and interest. I've changed the focus of my stock more than once to accommodate changes in the market and now focus on building a stock of fine press books and examples of the book arts. As stated, I believe in presenting books of merit and offer collectors, at all levels, books and ephemera that may speak to them.

I have been a member of IOBA since 2004 and have served the organization in many ways: President in 2007, Editor of the IOBA Standard, member of the Internet Committee, and Webmaster. I'm contributing to the 'new' and see a bright future for what the site offers to the public and how it serves our membership.
