February 3 on Rare Book Cafe: As Leonardo reminds us, "“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

Hillsborough, NC’s Mark Alexander’s rare book turf is literary firsts, especially poetry, important fiction, fine printing and publishing ephemera; with a particular interest in signed/inscribed books, association copies, books by and about Vladimir Nabokov, and advanced and uncorrected proof copies. About ⅔ of his 8000-volume inventory is poetry, he says.
