Fantatic new website
One of my very favorite areas of the bibliofilic world is book trade labels. I have a modest collection I'm pretty proud of. There are a few websites devoted to these gems of the book world, and now there is another, http://www.booksellerlabels.com/ Gabe Konrad of Bay Leaf Used & Rare Books has put together a wonderful site with lots of great information all gathered into a convenient, useful site.
He sorts through some of the questions of what is a book trade label, provides a very useful list of references, even providing links to how he had some labels made for his own shop.
The image to the right is a few of my own labels I've printed as a postcard. I'm thinking of doing a series.
