Some belated snapshots from last month’s visit to York:
Everyone told me that York was beautiful, but I didn’t really understand until I arrived. This walled city — home to Romans, Vikings, and Richard III — hosts the York Antiquarian Book Seminar (YABS) each fall, a great resource for booksellers looking to learn the trade.I gave the enthusiastic (if jetlagged) YABS keynote on a Monday morning, 4 AM Brooklyn time:
The inimitable Jonathan Kearns:
After the seminar, it was time to set up at the York National Book Fair, the largest book fair in England — and an opportunity to catch up with Fuchsia Voremberg of Maggs, and expat Brooke Palmieri, newly appointed editor of Printing History:
A million thanks to YABS student Kait Mellini for her help at the Honey & Wax stand:
And then, farewell York! I look forward to walking your streets again one day.
