The Endless Bookshelf : simply messing about in books

Buchnarr, 1494. Ware! Ware! Ware the Book-Fool!

The last few days have been spent on preparations for the New York Antiquarian Book Fair, where much of the secret library has been sold, and a few interesting items bought and sold during the fair. I have updated the reading log of the Public Transport Reading Project, and added a new section, a picture archive of the bookshelves featured here. All the books in the new bindery project have been sewn, time to make and assemble the covers now. I will post again later today.


Overheard on the subway, 12 April 07 
Downtown N train : four young teenage girls in blue soccer (?) uniforms, conversing across the aisle as though the subway car was their own living room. The first said, I was reading my geology textbook and this guy sat next to me, after a while he said, you have to know the names of all these rocks ? I just looked at him.
