You never know what you'll see at the book fair

We were looking back through some of the photographs taken at the 2013 Florida Antiquarian Book Fair last March and we came across this delightful little scene that had slipped our minds.

It looks like Marlowe has made a new friend. Marlowe the puppy came with Sunday Steinkirchner and Josh Mann of B&B Rare Books, Ltd., ABAA in New York. Sunday and Josh will be back for the 2014 Florida Antiquarian Book Fair next March. Betcha Marlowe comes, too. 

Anyway, we thought we'd share this little vignette of cuteness. It was delightful surprise not only for us but for many fairgoers who saw it in person. That's what we love about the book fair. You never know what you're going to see. One year a couple of the dealers burst into a spontaneous fiddle concert. (We'll have to dig that out of the archives and share it sometime soon.)

The point of all of this, of course, is to remind you to expect the unexpected at the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair.
