Some Special Collectibles

Well, the holidays are over, which means it’s time to reward yourself for making it through another season; get that present for yourself. So, after taking a photo of yourself wearing that hideous sweater grandma got for you so you can prove what grateful person you are, and after returning it, take that sweater cash down to Bibliohead and check out some of our beautiful books. Despite some brisk business over the holidays we still have many great titles, collectible and plain enjoyable. Here’s a photo of some of the great collectible books we recently acquired.

Some specific posts on individual works (with better picture) are forthcoming, including those two dark, imposing tomes on the top left of the above picture. It is a collection of etchings by British landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner. Happy New Year!

 

Come in

Harold Norse

In addition to our previously mentioned William S. Burroughs collection, we here at Bibliohead have a unique collection of another beat writer: Harold Norse. Norse was born in New York City in 1919, hanging out W.H. Auden, getting praise from William Carlos Williams and writing a cut up novel, Beat Hotel, while living in Paris with Burroughs et al, before finally landing in San Francisco where he would spend the last 35 years of his life. Many of these are signed, but the prices range. We have tons of other great poetry as well–including in our one-of-a-kind “gumball” machine.
