March Madness Sale at Potterton Books NY

What: the creme de la creme of design books but for less: 25% percent off new titles and 10% or more off rare and out-of-print titles

Where: Potterton Books New York in the lobby of the D&D Building, 979 3rd Avenue between East 58th and 59th - but you can call too! 212.644.2292

When: Starting Monday, March 16 through the 20th, 9:30am to 5:30pm

Why: Because a beautiful book can take you to far-away places for a lot less than a plane ticket. Because it's important to support local bookstores. Because it's on sale! Because you've always wanted a copy of Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, & People*, or Empress Bianca, the (alleged!) expose on Lily Safra, whose first printing was pulped because of its scandalous content.

Honest to goodness I think you sold that Vogue book. I just clicked over to check the price and it is already gone. Darn. It is on my wish list.

Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, People was the book that pretty much changed my life. Is it terribly rare, expensive~ and therefore worth selling to Mrs Blandings when I fall on hard times?

A friend purging his library gave me his copy - little did I know how generous he was being! It really is a sensational book - not over-rated IMO.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Toby, darling, times could never be that hard. One will fortuitously come my way I'm sure. I borrowed a friend's copy and it is, indeed, everything it's hyped to be.

We only have a few locally owned bookstores left in the Kansas City area. I hope everyone will continue to support Rainy Day Books, Spiveys, etc.

One day I will own a copy of Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, & People! I use to look at it all the time in the Pittsburgh library. I still vividly remember the photos of Amanda and Carter Burden.
