Description

Bibliophiles unite! Step inside the leather-and-musk-scented world of New York City’s rare book world, an eclectic crew of wheelers and dealers dedicated to preserving history one musty tome at a time. Behold books bound in human flesh, accounts of polar expeditions containing tufts of real mammoth fur, manuscripts scribed by Borges, and other literary curiosities. But these stranger-than-fiction relics are more than just novel—they are links to our shared past. Executive produced by Parker Posey, The Booksellers celebrates the value of books as tangible objects at a time when their very existence is threatened.
