Once the warm weather hits, at least one Bookery employee rushes over to Sapsucker Woods, home of the Cornell Ornithology Lab, with a few bird books in hand. We’ve got a lovely selection of ornithology books at the store, from giant folios for the coffee table, to pocket-sized guides to take out on the trails. Even if you don’t have access to good bird-watching spots, we think some of our books could awake the birder in you.
We’ve been lucky enough to add three issues of The Outsider to our inventory recently. These literary magazines from the 1960s feature the work of iconic beat writers William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gary Snyder, Michael McClure, and Jack Kerouac. Look out for Langston Hughes and Jean Genet in these issues, as well. These fascinating magazines, printed by hand, provide a window into the artistic aesthetic of a bygone era.
Looking to entertain guests this spring or hoping to try an exciting new recipe? Our cooking and food section is filled with titles that are sure to inspire you to create a delicious menu. Be sure to visit our wine and spirits section as well to find the the perfect beverage to pair.
We buy books in an array of subjects here at The Bookery. If you’ve run out of room on your shelves, bring your extra books down to the store. We’ve got hand carts here for larger loads, and the staff will happily help you bring your books in. We’re especially interested in philosophy, music, and modern art at the moment, but we’ll take a look at whatever you’ve got. Before you donate those unwanted books, see if you can make a buck or two selling them to The Bookery!
We’ve been adding quite a few new books lately. If you’re local to Ithaca, or just visiting for the day, stop on by and see what’s new in-store. You can also browse our shop online.
We’ve got lots of new arrivals in the store this week. One of our favorites is this first edition of Dear Mili, signed and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. It would make a fabulous gift, or an extra special addition to the library of any Sendak fan.
Happy National Poetry Month to all our readers! Here are two early issues of Poetry Magazine. The Bookery has an extensive selection of poetry, as well as numerous books on poetics.
It may be snowing today and the first day of April may be tomorrow, but we’re still waiting on some more spring-like weather. Ithaca is home to some beautiful landscapes and incredible opportunities to see nature. With that in mind, we’re sharing a few picks from our entomology section.
We’re adding some new books to the inventory today, including this gorgeous author-signed book of children’s poems from the Tang Dynasty: Maples In The Mist, by Minfong Ho. We’re getting lost in the gorgeous full-page illustrations. It’s shelved in the Children’s section, but we think people of all ages will enjoy it.
