Trends in book jacket design: Somehow everything in this shipment is the same color. And they are all fascinating books! #QuimbysBookstoreChicago #quimbysbookstore #quimbys #books #bluebooks A post shared by Quimbys Bookstore (@quimbysbookstore) on May 12, 2018 at 1:11pm …

Oh My...this is, perhaps, the loveliest book in our shop.
Sanya Glisic's Struwwelpeter, done in conjunction with her residency at Chicago's Spudnik Press is a fully-silkscreened clothbound collection of warped German cautionary tales for children. Glisic's printed her exquisite illustrations in gorgeous warm autumnal colors, and they reflect classic victorian children's engravings while harboring a subtle modern wit. An artists' book in every sense of the word, a thing of beauty is a joy forever. -EF
