Heribert Tenschert and TEFAF Fall Illuminate New York Next Week – The Fine Books Blog

Readers may recall our story back in March highlighing the TEFAF Maastricht art and antiquarian fair. Next week TEFAF lands in Manhattan, where it will hold court at the Park Avenue Armory from October 28 through November 1 and welcome nearly one hundred dealers from around the world. Held three times a year in North America and in Europe, TEFAF is widely considered one of the world’s premier art and antiques fair, offering museum-quality pieces to the general public.

Among the dealers at this year’s show include Heribert Tenschert, a Switzerland-based German bookseller who, in his words, specializes in “the finest manuscripts and printed books available in the book market.” Read all about Tenschert and his magnificent books at: Heribert Tenschert and TEFAF Fall Illuminate New York Next Week – The Fine Books Blog

Master bookbinder Tim Ely’s elaborate
art books are a sophisticated otherworldly mash-up of landscapes,
diagrams, and architecture meant to inspire and provoke. The Snohomish,
Washington, native has been making books for almost his entire life,
finding inspiration on heaven and in earth, fusing science and art with
paper and ink. Now, contemporary art bookbinding specialist Abby Schoolman Books is presenting eight of his recently completed art books for sale in a catalog entitled Timothy C. Ely 8 Books.
