Documents, observations and reminiscences from 40 years of bookselling, this lavish collection of illustrations and essays covers perhaps bookselling's most elegant times. Holstein knew everyone, and brought a sharp eye to the making and marketing of books. Many Americans are included in this almost exclusively German-language volume, including James Waslsh, Arthur A. Cohen, Mel Edelstein., and more. Steven Heller's words about Holstein's previous book may be applied to this one as well: Even for the non-German reader, this critical mass of Weimar-era dust jackets and covers... will make eyes pop." The present book adds a wealth of memories to the book covers, art and documents it offers.
