Books on books June 25, 2008

Filed under: Books about Books — Kim @ 10:48 pm

Recently I have noticed that a new collection is growing in my library. The shelve, or now shelves, that holds books about books is growing faster then any other shelve or category. I do not only like to read, I like to read about books as well. This can be anything from reading about other peoples libraries to the care for books. (Click here to view my books on books collection: English, Dutch, German.) Since I am a photographer, amongst other things, I love photo books that depict books or libraries too.

A couple of days ago, I wandered into an modern antiquarian. My heart jumped when I noticed the little area devoted to books about books and publishing. I found “A book of books” there. A wonderful book with beautiful pictures of Abelardo Morell in it. Next to the pictures are often quotations or poems by famous writers about books. If you love photography and books, this book is a must have! Learn more about the book here.

PS. If you want to read more about books about books, select the likewise named category in the side bar. (Or simply click here.)
