As a summer project—and with a lot of assistance from my son Harry—I’ve started a tumblelog called “pages” that you can check out here.
The main purpose of this new tumblr is to reproduce images culled from our collection of rare and collectible books. I want to virtually curate our books as a way to more widely share some wonderful bits-and-pieces of literary esoterica that would otherwise sit unloved on our shelves or eventually disappear into the libraries of customers.
I want to share my enthusiasm for the purely visual pleasures of these books before a renewed effort in the fall to sell many of them off. On the tumblelog you’ll see covers, illustrations, recipes, diagrams…even pictures of things found in the books. I will also be editing and photo-shopping here-and-there in my role as curator.
I hope you enjoy the show and check back often.
