Publié le 01 Oct. 2018
Die Ausstellung "Wie ein fruchtbarer Regen nach langer Dürre" läuft noch bis Februar 2019 an der Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg. Vor 100 Jahren kam es in der Buchherstellung und -gestaltung zu zahlreichen Neuanfängen und Wiederentdeckungen, die maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die moderne Typographie hatten. Die Entstehung und Ausprägung der Buchkunstbewegung vor allem in Deutschland in der Zeit um 1900 bis in die 1930er Jahre ist das Thema der Ausstellung. Die Universität sprach mit Kurator, Dr. Jürgen Franssen.

Collectors, Booksellers and Libraries: Essays on Americanists and the Rare Book Market by the late William Reese

Publié le 17 Sept. 2018
The rare book trade lost one of its most active members earlier this year.

In a tribute to Mr Reese, ILAB will publish two chapters of his book over the next few weeks on this website with the permission of William Reese & Co.

Five Young Women With Prize-Winning Book Collections

Publié le 11 Sept. 2018
The Paris Review, 7th September 2018: In 2017, Honey & Wax Booksellers established an annual prize for American women book collectors, aged 30 years and younger. The idea took shape when Heather O’Donnell and Rebecca Romney, the bookstore’s owners, observed that “the women who regularly buy books from us are less likely to call themselves 'collectors' than the men, even when those women have spent years passionately collecting books."

Introduction to Jewish Book Collecting

When Jewish families sit down to celebrate the Passover festival, they read from the Haggadah, a book that recounts the story of when the Children of Israel left the bonds of slavery in Egypt and became a free nation. The Haggadah is one of the most iconic and popularly collected Jewish books – there are approximately 7000 editions with translations from Hebrew into different languages including English, Arabic, Russian, Amharic, and German ...

Collecting - The Serio-Comic Mapmaker Fred W. Rose

Fred W. Rose (1849-1915) stands out as the most influential figure in the design and authorship of the so-called "Serio-comic" political cartoon map in late Victorian Britain. His remarkable maps include: A Serio-Comic War Map, 1877 (published in three slightly different versions); England on Guard, 1878; A Comic Map of the British Isles, 1880; Angling in Troubled Waters, 1899, and John Bull and his Friends, 1900. All were published in London by G W Bacon & Co.

Collecting - Colortext Maps of the 1930s

Beginning in 1935 a Chicago publisher, Colortext Publications Inc., issued a series of arresting color pictorial maps, chiefly of European countries, that employ, in the map's title, the prefix "The Story Map of …" followed by the country or locale's name. The maps were intended to convey significant aspects of history and culture pictorially, employing images of places, persons, or design motifs associated with a given nation's or geographical region's cultural identity. Unfortunately, very little is known about Colortext's origins, the personnel involved in its operations, or those individuals responsible for most of the maps that were produced. Thus a primary objective of this site is to call attention to the firm and its activities with the hope that new information regarding the company and the cartographers involved in its product will be forthcoming.

Rummage in Curzon Street

Off to Mayfair again today to take a look at two rather different bookshops perched either side of Curzon Street. On the south side, at no. 46, is the retail showroom of Shepherds, incorporating of course the famous old Sangorski & Sutcliffe bookbinding business. As you might expect, all the emphasis is on fine bindings – new and not so new. Rob Shepherd, incidentally doing a fine job as the new ABA treasurer, and his colleague Kim Pooley, bemoan the fact that the stock is looking a little thin – they simply sold so many books in the run-up to Christmas and the bindery is already at full stretch. Nice problems to have, in a sense, but there are plans to move a lot of the gorgeous stationery, bookbinding accessories and so on, over to their new premises in Gillingham Street at Victoria and to concentrate on books here in Curzon Street.
