As many longtime TPL readers are aware, for the past couple of years it has been this writer's privilege and honor to contribute an occasional piece to the Fine Books & Collections Blog, official blog of Fine Books & Collections, the magazine (better known to its many fans as FB&C).
Founded back in 2003 as OP magazine, and now under the capable editorial direction of Rebecca Rego Barry, FB&C is one of the finest magazines of its type that remains in print. It regularly features compelling news and articles about every aspect of book collecting, and numbers among its regular contributors such worthies as Nicholas Basbanes, Joel Silver, Jeremy Dibbell, Nate Pedersen ... to name only a few who come immediately to mind.
If you have any interest at all in collecting the printed book, your faithful blogger considers FB&C a must buy ... and cheap (only U.S. $25.00 for four print issues per year). FB&C also sponsors a companion free monthly eNewsletter, delivered directly to the email address of your choice.
I bring FB&C to your attention because print magazines devoted to book collecting are few and far between. Without the active financial support of readers, such magazines tend to cease publication, never again to be seen.
FB&C itself disappeared from print a while back, only to be resurrected. That alone, in this writer's humble opinion, deserves the respect and support of everyone who still collects the printed book....
