Reading Room ::: 500 Handmade Books: Inspiring Interpretations of a Timeless Form


I found a marvelous book that's great to take along to places like the laundromat, simply because you can pick it up, put it down, read it, lose your place, re-read it... it's fascinating and NEVER gets old!

Le mariage de M. Anselme des Tilleuls Jules Verne notes de J.M. Margot By Jules Verne Beatrice Coron, 2001. Edition of 25. 6 x 9 x 1.5" in French with pochoir illustrations. A paper hypertext with text printed by inkjet, words having notes are highlighted, the notes are in a pocket inside each page. Each page also opens revealing a photocopy of the handwritten manuscript by Jules Verne. $800


                                 
Bartleby The Scrivener, A Story of Wall Street is a fine press artist book by Wilber "Chip" Schilling, Indulgence Press. The original edition ran 100 copies. You can find pricing here.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
