A small collection of eclectic and unusual material including artists books, fine press, and zine and touching on subjects from Cold War psychic drawing and women’s movement/sex work to climate change and thee occult. We tried to cover a lot of ground in a mere 18 items.
A quick list of items related, in one way or another, to Kim's discussion of occult collecting at the virtual Brooklyn Antiquarian Fair. Enjoy.
A quick, short list of 20 new titles that we added in the last few weeks. Additional images upon request, as always. Enjoy.
A small collection of unusual poster art. Some from the 1960s (including work signed by A. Kelley and S. Mouse), some later political posters (LBJ, Nixon, and Reagan), and some remarkable Anarcho-Anti-Uranium Mining posters from Australia (there are no copies of these in any US holdings)...and some extras. Enjoy.
A well illustrated list of things that have recently arrived...as we are unlikely to be debuting anything at book fairs for a while...
New and shiny books and pamphlets to sate your occultish desires... Stay safe, wash your hands, be well.

A very short catalgue, a mere three items, reflecting the moment. One book art, one design binding, one early medical treatise on pestilential disease... Enjoy.
