Baker & Taylor
A smaller-format edition of the critically praised oversized gift book pays tribute to the written word with a compilation of dozens of duotone photographs that capture a variety of unusual books, ranging from a huge dictionary to a tiny volume that is smaller than a paper clip.

Blackwell North Amer
A visual tribute to the printed word, this ode to books will be irresistible to anyone who treasures the touch of fine paper and the special allure of a clothbound volume. A Book of Books showcases Abelardo Morell's elegant black and-white photographs of unusual books - an impossibly large dictionary, illustrated volumes whose characters appear to leap off the page, and water-damaged books that take on sculptural form. Nicholson Baker has written extensively about books and libraries. His preface is the ideal complement to Morell's photographs in this beautifully produced book lover's book. Bookish quotations from literary sources including Hawthorne, Borges, Cocteau, and others accompany the photographs throughout.
