Chapter 690 The Collective, A Catalogue for the February, 2012 California Book Fairs

I have an announcement to make — a catalogue announcement!

Announcing:  The Collective!

No, it’s not my Catalogue #2, but it is a catalogue that features a few of the many books I’ll be offering for sale at the San Francisco and Los Angeles (Pasadena) Antiquarian Book Fairs next month. I like to think of this new catalogue as a nice bridge between Catalogue #1:  Dante Alighieri and Catalogue #2:  Subject As Yet Unannounced. It’s Catalogue #1.5 🙂

This catalogue, the collaborative effort of seven ABAA booksellers including yours truly was the brilliant idea of my colleagues and friends Brad and Jen Johnson of The Book Shop in Covina, California.  Each bookseller is exhibiting at both fairs and each was given two pages on which to show off some of his or her best books to be offered for sale at the February fairs. Brad and Jennifer designed the cover (image of front and back above) and did all of the graphic design and layout, a couple of others wrote the Terms of Sale and Introduction pages, and we each contributed two pages of books for sale, featuring some of the treasures we plan to bring to the February fairs. We divided the costs of printing.

The catalogue is available as a downloadable PDF. You can click here or on the image above or on the image in the far right sidebar of this blog (top right corner).  If you’d like a print copy, most of those will be distributed at the fair, but I do have some available for mailing. Just let me know by leaving a comment or sending an email to chris AT bookhuntersholiday DOT com.

See you in the stacks!
