Thank you for relating this positive experience. I notice that throughout
your post you refer to "the librarian." I just wanted to give kudos to the
one librarian there at U-Washington who has worked so hard to build that
collection and who manages it so well. Also one of the nicest people
(speaking as a bookmaker) to work with that I have ever met in this
artists' books/book arts world. That is, Sandra Kroupa. Thanks, Sandra.
