I joined the Book Club of California last week and received an envelope filled with back issues of their newsletter, journal (letterpress printed and edited by Peter Koch, no less), and other information from past publications, talks, and exhibits.
We are in the long and complex process of building a new house. The house will have space for a library, a rare book room, and a studio for my book repair work. I've been dreaming about having enough room for my books since I was a little girls. When we started the planning process, I thought it would be easy to explain what I wanted to the architect and interior designer. The library was so clear in my head. Of course it wasn't that simple.
