Flipping through Fine Books & Collections magazine

It’s not that often that I get to physically flip through the seriously glossy, colorful pages of Fine Books & Collections. Today it was the perfect go-to after coming in from a frigid, slap-you-in-the-face New York City Winter day. When you’re ready to venture out to your local magazine stand/bookshop, I must insist you pick up a copy (or order one online)!

To entice you further, here are some of the highlights:

Ian McKay’s overview of the earliest editions of the Book of Hawking, Hunting and Fishing (The Boke of Hawkynge and Huntynge and Fyssynge)

Jonathan Lethem’s book history, and new future in rare and collectible bookselling

Martha W. Steger’s overview of movie and television book/ephemera props in the collectibles marketplace (featuring items from Beetlejuice, Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire, and National Treasure)

Joel Silver looks towards other collecting fields in order to better understand the whys and hows of  book collecting
