Basbanes On PaperLongtime friend of the ABAA Nicholas Basbanes will be signing copies of his latest book, On Paper, at the upcoming Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair. You can find him at the ABAA Booth at 1pm on Saturday, November 16th. Proceeds will benefit the ABAA's Benevolent Fund, which provides aid to booksellers in distress. The cost of the book is $35. On Paper takes the reader on a journey throughout the history of paper and the ways in which it has influenced and shaped societies throughout the world. Publisher's Weekly gave the book a starred review, saying that through Basbanes's "wide-ranging, freewheeling, authoritative" survey of paper, he "reveals how many roles, directly and indirectly, paper plays in our lives." As if you needed another reason to visit the Boston fair. We hope to see you in line for a copy of Mr. Basbanes's excellent new book!
