Dutch Bound Books.

On Monday, I had the rare opportunity to feast my eyes (in real life) upon the wonders of the Wolfsonian Library in Miami, Florida. Knowledgeable librarian Niki Harsanyi, introduced me to beautiful books made in Holland at the turn of the 20th century. The Wolfsonian Library has the second largest collection of Dutch bound books next to Holland. For those who don’t live or visit Miami—Niki also pointed me to PALMM (Publication of Archival, Library & Museum Materials), a online digital image resource for the Wolfsonian’s vast collection of Nieuwe Kunst and Art Nouveau era books. Many thanks to Tim Hossler for arranging the visit.
