Margaret Armstrong bindings



This is too good to keep to myself.

The Boston Book Company is currently selling a collection of some 300
Margaret Armstrong designed bindings.  The entire collection is going for
just under $20,000.  Margaret Armstrong, who died in 1944, is generally
acknowledged as the preeminent designer of trade bindings in the United
States.

Each title is fully listed at their site, and there are digital images of
perhaps 20 bindings.

I am not--in no shape or form--affiliated with the Boston Book Company.

I am, however, a huge fan of Margaret Armstrong.

Go to:

Click on "collections" in red box on left, then "collections for sale,"
scroll down to "Margaret Armstrong," click again, and you'll find this
great list of Armstrong bindings.
