Welcome to the Fine Books Blog, from Ian Kahn

As you may have noticed, great things are afoot at Fine Books and Collections. I am very pleased to introduce the cadre of bloggers who will now be posting here. The intent is that all FB& C bloggers will post one or two times each week, which should result in a steady flow of interesting bits from many different areas of the book world. Those helping launch this newly transitioned group blog will be:

This great collection of bloggers is very excited to be involved in this project. Several of us are in San Francisco for the ABAA Book Fair this weekend...so I can safely predict some postings from the front lines of the first major fair of this economically complex season. This sort of group blog is a new thing for most of us, and we appreciate your support and feedback while the project evolves. Change makes for interesting times. Personally, I side with G.B. Shaw, "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." I think we have a great cadre of unreasonable men and women here...this should be great fun.
