Book it to the Armory

There’s just something about the smell of an old book, well-loved and frayed along the edges. Each page fold, spot, and loose thread tell its own story about its previous owners and the time that’s passed since its printing. Whether you’re in the market for a new addition to your collection, or you just want to surround yourself with literary objects and the people who peddle them, a book fair can be a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a community of bibliophiles for the day.

From March 9th to 12th, booksellers from around the world will descend upon New York to participate in the New York Antiquarian Book Fair at the Park Avenue Armory. At 55,000 square feet, the Armory is the perfect location to loose yourself among the stacks. Check out the extensive list of exhibitors and you’ll discover Antiquarian Aix-la-Chapelle, a rare book company out of Aachen, Germany that specializes in exploration, natural history, science, and incunabula (early printed books). Head over to the booth for the Argentinian shop, Librería De Antaño, and you’ll find atlases and maps, bindings, and Americana. Say you’re into illuminated manuscripts? Giuseppe Solmi Studio Bibliografico might have just what you’ve been looking for.

If you’re wondering about the value of your own treasure, come to Discovery Day on Sunday, from 1—3PM. Experts will be available to evaluate the objects you bring.
