This past spring, Princeton Architectural Press published The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson.

Brainpickings recently published a lengthy review by Maria Popova – lengthy partly because her review includes multiple samples of Dawson’s photos, like the one above.

The review includes links to the title at Amazon.com, which includes excerpts from other reviews  – all of them, like Popova’s, uniformly positive.

book themed coasters

Yikes! It’s December already! Time to begin thinking about what bookish-themed gift you might surprise your favorite booklover with, or treat yourself to this year.

The cool book-themed coaster set in the photo (brought to our attention by a Facebook posting by the Goodwill Librarian) is from the Expressions catalog.

More and more online stores are selling bookish merchandise, and we’ve gathered links to some of them in the “Booklover’s Toolbox” so you can find them throughout the year.
