A teaser from our gift guide, courtesy of Mr. Matthew Taylor (bookseller and bike-tamer):
"The epigraph to this photography collection by Gregory Crewdson is attributed to Raymond Carver, a figure whose stories of small-town America resonate well with Crewdson’s aesthetic. Equally important in distinguishing these painstakingly staged photos, however, is the way they diverge from other artistic representations of rural and suburban life in the 20th century. Where most convey a quiet desperation, Crewdson evokes an acute sense of the mysterious and potentially sinister emerging from the periphery. The prevalence of what Nancy Spector terms “the uncanny” in her introduction makes each of these images immediately visceral and haunting in the way they juxtapose our notions of quaint America with our fear of the unknown."

A Review of On Paper: The Everything of Its Two-Thousand-Year History by Nicholas A. Basbanes -...

"The old chestnut, 'If it isn’t written down, it didn’t happen,' comes
to mind in reading Nicholas Basbanes’ sparkling new history of paper,
published in October. Basbanes hands the reader a neat and compact
history of the invention of paper (by the Chinese around A. D. 105)
and its subsequent spread to the remainder of the world. He also
devotes much of the book to observing the actions and events triggered
by the presence of the written word on a medium suitable for receiving
it, namely the ubiquitous substance named after papyrus."

We were customers from France.... and I understand the owners have changed... I am sure you keep the same attention to your customers, give good advice about excellent publications and... if you are still in contact with the previous male owner send him the best regards from the French couple leaving in Tokyo and retired now in Paris...
