Live! From the New York Antiquarian Book Fair!

As Rebecca mentioned in the previous post, the New York Antiquarian Book Fair is being held this weekend. I'm very excited to be exhibiting for the first time at this event, where my fellow FB&C blogger Ian Kahn (of Lux Mentis) and I will be sharing a booth (B17). I know I speak for both of us when I say we hope readers will stop by and say hello.

For those who can't make it to the event, I have created a Flickr set where I will be posting images and commentary throughout the fair:

From set-up to break down (the books, the booksellers, the booths, the attendees, etc.), it may be the next-best thing to being there. I'll also be "tweeting" the book fair (as I'm sure Ian will be as well).

And finally, this year also marks the fiftieth anniversary of this august event and a wonderful history of the fair can be found in the latest issue of the ABAA newsletter. A great read.

Hope to see you at the fair!
