HUZZAH! It is National Library Week, bookworms and library cats!!
And that means it is the perfect time of year to show some love to your local (and not local) Libraries, both in person and online. So, just as we took time to make a special post on Follow a Library Day last year, we’ve created ANOTHER master post to honor all the libraries we know so far on tumblr so that you can #followalibrary!!
Check out their tumblrs below and show them some love, bookworms! (Alphabetical by url)
Whew! There’s a LOT of you. :) But we now this list is just getting started! Feel free to keep the library love going by adding any libraries we missed/don’t know of yet! (And if you’re not following US already, well, what better time to start than this week? ;) Eh? Eh?) And, of course, never hesitate to visit your Library in person. We love seeing you! :)
We’re all mad here in Special Collections - mad about this Pennyroyal Press edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland! The book was designed and illustrated with wood-engravings by print-maker Barry Moser. Our copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was part of a deluxe set, including an additional suite of over 100 wood-engravings signed by Moser.
Special Collections recently received the latest installment of a multi-year gift from New York collector Jerry Buff. This latest donation of over 1550 books consists mainly of fine-press and deluxe publications, considerably augmenting our collections of several American, British, and German private presses, as well as the work of important designers, publishers, and pressman. We are delighted that the donation included a number of Pennyroyal Press editions, including Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
