March at BFDC...

This is IT! The season roars in like a lion with Rare Book Week this month (arriving early, so don't blink or you'll miss it!). That's followed by not one but two fairs in Canada, one in New Mexico, and a couple in California, too, so if you're not in a New York state of mind, you've got options.

Bonus: The annual meeting of the Ephemera Society — details Here!

If you can't make it to the Big Show, visit the 450+ booksellers of the ABAA at Home. Here you'll find rare books, maps, documents, prints, posters, ephemera, plus a lively blog and lots of other great bookish tidbits!

NY Book Fair

This one just keeps getting better. More vendors, expanded hours, a convenient shuttle, and (wait for it) lots of free passes for those in the know. (Hint: sign up on their Web Site!)
