Con David Trueba, parte de su equipo y los actores Lucía Jiménez, Fernando Ramallo, en #urueña #villadellibro #booktown #tierradecampos. La crónica y las fotos de la que liamos, en la sección de noticias de nuestra web: www.libreriaprimerapagina.es

Fjærland has a "book town" of buildings (and nooks and crannies) filled with secondhand books. You take the books that you find to a main shop to pay for them, so it's very much an honor system. We found an entire trove of books about Minneapolis/St. Paul (and one about Duluth!) from the 1960's and 1970's that someone in the area had collected. 😂 #itsasmallworld #booktown #minnesotalove #norwaylove

Heute feiern wir die @bookdaviconatics zu denen ich gehöre 😁einen ganz lieben Mensch. Heute feiern wir David (@book_town ), der nun offiziell ein Mann ist. David ist eine der nettesten Menschen die ich in meinem Leben bisher kennen lernen durfte. Seine Videos zaubern mir jedes Mal ein Lächeln ins Gesicht. Dank David ist Bucheleganz, das was es heute ist. David hat in meinem Leben eine gigantische Kettenreaktion in Gang gesetzt und ich bin so dankbar dass ich ihm zu meinen Freundeskreis zählen kann. David, danke für alles. Happy Birthday :D
Ich habe euch "The Evolution of David" zusammengestellt.

New work made with a lovely copy of 'Saki-Short Stories' (Folio 1976). H H Munro, known as Saki, was a brilliant British writer of short stories who was born in Myanmar (Burma). This work features a 16th Century coastline of Myanmar cut through the cover and descending into the body of the book, page by page.
This piece will be featured in a small exhibition of my work at the annual Booktown Festival at Clunes this weekend. It is always a wonderful celebration of the book in its many incarnations.

Walt Disney: Hollywoods Dark Prince: A Biography by Marc Eliot. Hardcover book published by Andre Deutsch 1994, 305 pages with a few black and white photographs and illustrations. Everyone remembers him as the creator of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Bambi, Dumbo, Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Fantasia. His films and characters inspired the great Disney theme parks. A creative genius, Walt Disney brought love and laughter to children everywhere. In this specially revised British edition, Marc Eliot presents the real Walt Disney. The author reveals Disney’s twenty-five-year association with J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI as a Hollywood-based official informant before promotion to the rank of ‘Special Agent in Charge Contact’, rooting out Communists, subversives, and Jews. A lifelong anti- Semite, he absorbed this prejudice from his father, a strict fundamentalist who believed in corporal punishment and forced child labour. Walt Disney’s phobic behaviour is examined in detail, as is his obsessive hand-washing, heavy drinking, and sexual inadequacies. Unwilling to accept his father’s violence as a farm of love, and unable to ‘prove’ his own identity, he feared he had actually been adopted in infancy and was illegitimate. He spent a lifetime searching for his real mother. $15.50 + postage. #hgnew #bookstagram #instabook #rarebooks #bookporn #bookseller #vintagebooks #oldbooks #antiquarianbooks #booklover #books #rarebooks #rarebook #Clunes #Clunesvictoria #booktown #Ballarat #Daylesford #WaltDisney #Disney

My #booksellersbreakfast was eaten at my desk as I woke up late and had only 15 minutes to dress and prepare this. I grabbed the most purple book in our shop, this ornate leather bound classic edition from America of Little Women, because it matched the budlia. The whole kitchen smells of honey. It really is one of the best of our weeds, growing on the sides of railway lines and scrap yards adding this rich colour and heady scent. I am eating the last of the rhubarb crumble that I made from Mr Grumpy's home grown rhubarb.

Shack: In praise of an Australian icon by Simon Griffiths. Hardcover book with pictorial boards (no dust jacket) published by Lantern 2010, 201 pages with colour photographs. In Australia shacks have become our protest against the brick veneer, the place where we unwind on holiday, the workshop that feeds our soul. Photographer Simon Griffiths has travelled the countryside, from Jericho in Tasmania to the remote coast of Broome, to bring us images of shacks that are both familiar and exotic. We meet the shack dwellers - a mix of artists, environmentalists, fishermen, homebuilders and socialites - and experience the pleasure of inhabiting spaces that are at once monuments to self-expression and symbols of old- fashioned common sense. Beautifully put-together, Shack is a book that takes us back in history, out into the remote reaches of the famous Australian landscape and inwards to connect with our common desire for retreat and renewal. #hgnew #bookstagram #instabook #rarebooks #bookporn #bookseller #vintagebooks #oldbooks #antiquarianbooks #booklover #books #rarebooks #rarebook #Clunes #Clunesvictoria #booktown #Ballarat #Daylesford #architecture #australianarchitecture #shack #theshed

Ayer estuvimos en Bredevoort, villa del libro en Holanda.
Tengo que decir que el pueblo no tiene mucho encanto y que, además, tiene cada vez menos librerías según nos dijeron en la oficina de información.
Los libros que están en la calle son la mayoría para dejar el dinero, 2€ por libro, en una caja.

My last #booksellersbreakfast for a few days as I'm going on holiday with @rose.towler and @jezzertron Their little sister Pema and Mr Grumps. It's a #caturday post with the two of the best novels written from a cat's point of view. These are for sale£8.95 and£6.95. The tea and croissants I'm sharing with Pema and her dad before we get on the road are delicious especially with strong hot tea.

Propped on my pillow are these lovely Penguin E. M. Forster books from the 1960s. Two of them have illustrated covers by David Gentleman. I have had a forty year old passion for Forster's work. He always had the ability to surprise me. His stories were perfectly balanced and gracefully peopled yet with a bite and an edge. I read them in these editions bought for under a £1 each when I was in my teens. These are priced at £4.95 but I really don't want to sell them. This is a battle all booksellers face. I love sharing writers with customers so I'll probably let them go to the right person. Today I read in Shepard's confidential - the best bookselling online weekly magazine - that book sales continue to rise exponentially while ereader downloads continue to fall. The book has won. The article (from the Telegraph) quoted an interior decorator who said that people liked having shelves of real books to photograph and also liked to appear intelligent when people came for dinner. The decorator mentioned the shelfie and Instagram as other factors which I liked but he made me roll my eyes by stating that "bookmakers" were making prettier books to answer this need. Books are not made, they are published by publishers. Bookmakers take bets. It's really very simple but trust an interior decorator to make this sort of mistake. I wish they had shown some of the beautiful shots so many of our young bookstagrammers have taken of their shelves and books. I don't think they quite understood the passion that booklovers have for both the inside and the outside of a physical book. Still I'm very happy that real books have won the battle. We booksellers have had a few lean years and some scary times when we felt there was no future for us. Thank you everyone who continues to buy books and supports independent bookshops. You keep the magic going. I'm going for a six day break without internet and with three children and Mr Grumpy so I will not be posting until next Friday....
