It was hot, so many like Richard Spelker, from California, donned appropriate attire.
During the evening, we were guests of the University of Arizona Library Special Collections.
The Special Collections unit has a large space Lynn (and the entire ZSR Special Collections Team) would love.
There is a large meeting room, a gallery and a secured reading room with controlled access and several separate consulting/research spaces. I met the director and had a nice discussion around the Philip Smith binding of James Joyces’ Ulysses.
The Special Collections Reading room was decked out with prize bindings, each with a printed catalog record.
What follows is a few images of these bindings from U of A Special Collections:
