Our Summer Issue

FBC2013summer-cover.jpgOur summer issue is off at the printer this week, and here's a sneak peek. Our cover story is a look at the life and legacy of Maurice Sendak by children's book historian Leonard Marcus. In the Book Art column, Richard Minsky interviews printer Clifton Meador. In the Library, we delve into the Huntington's forthcoming exhibit of extra-illustrated books. The Ladies of Letterpress talk to us about our their group and its goals. Nicholas Basbanes visits with married collectors who specialize in decorated paper.

The summer issue is also distinguished by the annual Biblio 360 -- our guide to bookish exhibits, classes, clubs, conferences, and more. Clocking in at 12,500 words, Biblio offers readers more than 250 different ways to get involved with books and connect with fellow collectors. Plus our usual dose of auction reviews and record-breakers, fine cartography, some focus on publishers' bindings, and an essay by bookseller Helen Younger on how collecting children's books has changed in the past twenty years.
