Watch the trailer for "The Booksellers" which opens 6th March!
Lithub.com writes: "Have you ever dreamed of becoming an antiquarian bookseller? Or just wanted to get to know one better? Or maybe you just like old books a lot. Either way, this is the documentary for you. Directed by D.W. Young and executive produced by Parker Posey, the film features interviews with rare book dealers of all stripes, as well as collectors, auctioneers, and writers like Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Kevin Young, and Gay Talese—true book believers all." (full article and some reviews here)
"The Booksellers" features ILAB booksellers such as Argosy Books, Heather O'Donnell and Rebecca Romney, Dan Wechsler, Jim Cummings and Henry Wessels, Ed Maggs, the late Bill Reese and many more familiar names in the rare book world. Collectors invite into their library and share their passion.
And of course, the film largely features the New York Antiquarian Book Fair which will celebrate its 60th anniversary this year.
So what better way than visiting the NY fair this year and then end the day with the screening of the movie on
6 March 2020 at Quad Cinemas New York!
If not in New York, another screening will take place on 3 April at the Laemmle Royal in Los Angeles!
