Honey & Wax 2.0

It’s on! After two years, Honey & Wax has moved into a proper office. I no longer have to contemplate the fate of the Collyer brothers every time I return from a book fair. Come visit, by chance or appointment: Honey & Wax Booksellers, 540 President Street at the Brooklyn Creative League. The office with the yellow door!

Our apartment was like a clown car. More and more books kept pouring out of it.

  8. Yay – it’s worth it even if somebody had to lose a thumb. These are books – it’s all in, or get out the way. I mean, obviously.
