In the Press - Rare Book Dealer Robert Schoisengeier featured in the TV series “Aufgetischt”

Published on 12 Nov. 2014
A great place to deal with rare and beautiful books, right in the heart of Vienna, a few steps away from the State Opera House and the "Museums-Quartier", next to the National Library and the famous Art Museum: Robert Schoisengeier has been running the Antiquariat Burgverlag in Vienna (Burgring 1 + 3) for many years. He is specialized in rare and fine books on art, architecture and literature with a main interest in illustrated books, prints and drawings. Schoisengeier exhibits at the international antiquarian book fairs, publishes catalogues, offers his books in the internet and – most of all – owns one of the most wonderful antiquarian bookshops.

The Mimeo Revolution - Secret Location on the Upper East Side

As much as I hate to admit it, Kulchur is one of the great magazines of the Mimeo Revolution. The mag irks because it proves false my notion that good funding translates into a bad mag.

Antiquarian Book Fairs - Paper Town

It was a beautiful morning, one of the last fine days of the summer, with trees just beginning to turn the corner toward the explosion of colors that precede winter's monotone. But instead of going into the woods, where I know the swamp maples along the brook are already flashing their pinks and deeper reds, I got in my car and drove to Paper Town.
