We were fortunate to spend the Christmas weekend in NYC with the Brooklyn branch of the family, staying at the sister's Central Park West apartment while she was staying in her Colorado home. (sounds so much bigger than it really is, we are, after all, humble folk)
While on a bit of free time, we went to the McNally Jackson Bookstore, and went right to the M section. It reminds us of the beauty of the printed book. The cover art, the binding, the feel of the page, the diversity of the editions, all are value added by the publishers. Some might question the worth of these endeavors, but not those folks whose livelyhood derives from this work. It may seem a small thing, but generations to come will be able to hold in their hands this work.
Have a happy Holiday from TMDC!
