Two weeks ago I posted our first installment about rare books on Instagram. I mentioned that round two would cover “booksellers and collectors,” however I neglected a very important part of the Instagram universe: librarians with their own Instagram accounts, separate from their institutions. (A fact politely pointed out by Diane Dias DeFazio, herself a previous entry in our Bright Young Booksellers series and an avid Instagram user). Since then, we’ve received numerous recommendations for both librarians and booksellers / collectors, so I’ll be splitting the recommendations into two more posts. Today’s post will feature those Librarians of Instagram; booksellers and collectors to follow another week.
And so, here we go!
