About meI am, indeed, an avid collector of the volumes known as antiquarian. In an age of technological advance, my fondest moments are not in front of a screen but instead in intense concentration in my small bindery where I work toward preservation of shamelessly flamboyant works of fine binding, marbalized end papers and wonderfully designed fonts and illustrations.

About my libraryAbout 800 books which includes mostly British classics from the 19th and 20th centuries. Especially fond of Folio and Heritage Press editions. Love illustrations and illustrators: Fritz Echenberg, Rockwell Kent, Hugo Steiner-Prag. Enjoy the off-beat.
