|June 2, 2022 - June 4, 2022||Biblio.live Virtual Book Fair!
There is a certain special magic that happens at a book fair. It is the awe of being face to face with astonishing books and art, the camaraderie and fellowship among bibliophiles, and the thrill of discovering an outstanding piece to add to your collection.
We can't pretend that a virtual fair is the same experience as an in-person one, but we’ve learned a lot in the past few years. Mostly, how to make a virtual fair more valuable to both customers and sellers alike.
Biblio.live is here to bridge the gap between the physical and virtual book fair experience. For the first time ever, customers will have direct access to sellers through our brand new chat function, and sellers will have access to Biblio's vast customer base. Join us for our March 2nd book fair, and we'll continue to expand the ways you can communicate with each other, explore the books and ephemera in greater detail, and make lasting connections.

Focus on Women
Swann’s second annual Focus on Women sale, as its name suggests, is an opportunity to emphasize women’s experiences and contributions to literature, science, art, politics, and thought. With published and manuscript material from the hand-press period, through the work of living artists, bidders will have a chance to bid on photographs, prints, books, and more material, while remembering women’s stories through time.
Celebrating Black Women:
This year’s Focus On Women sale contains the work of a number of significant Black women. Beginning with a rare Phillis Wheatley poem, and continuing into the nineteenth century, with Sojourner Truth’s autobiography. The sale also includes many literary prize winners and first editions from the twentieth century.
We are pleased to offer Georgia Johnson’s Bronze, Nella Larsen’s Passing, Gwendolyn Brooks’s A Street in Bronzeville, and a number of first editions by Toni Morrison and Alice Walker. Black activists and artists are also represented, including material related to Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, and Josephine Baker.
