Welcome to the new website of Andrew Langer, Bookseller. Long-conceived but not created until now, this site will operate in tandem with andrewlangerbookseller.com to showcase the unusual, uncommon and generally not easily found ephemera, books, and more that have become our stock for fairs these past years. There are less few items here than we hoped as this has been put together during the pandemic of 2020 and in the shadow of the Independent Online Booksellers Association Virtual Book Fair. We hope you will like what you see. We have for years held back show-worthy material from the major book sites. You will find that we mostly adhere to our stated interests, but that almost anything might be found here, except the commonplace. We aggressively seek this type of material and offer what we are lucky enough to find.
There are currently only a few items on this site, but each one will not be easily located elsewhere in commerce. Those that are will be seen at prices that are considerably lower than can be found elsewhere. If you like what you see, we encourage you to sign up for our mailing list. Shortly we expect to add a way for your to select those categories you have interest in. We will let you know when that feature is ready and after that, the site will notify you automatically whenever we post something within your selected interests.
This site would not exist without the efforts of three individuals, and I wish to thank each. First, I want to thank Doug Nelson, the current President of IOBA. Without his personal efforts and leadership, the Fair we are all attending today would not exist. We all owe him our gratitude and thanks.
Second is one of the newest members of IOBA. She is both a colleague and a personal friend and has encouraged an effort like this for a long time. I encourage all to check out the quirky stock offered by Kate Mitas, Bookseller, both at the Fair and on her own web site.
Lastly I want to thank Jessica Savoy of Savoy Media Works. Without her tireless efforts to bring this site to life in an unreasonable timeframe and with the panache that I frankly lack, you would not be here today.
For having read this far, we want to offer you a 20% discount on anything found at andrewlangerbookseller.com. Just use coupon code IOBA20 on that site when checking out. This will remain in effect through the end of this month.
With that I encourage you to take a look around, both on this site, on our other site and elsewhere at the Fair. There has never been anything quite like this, but we can already tell that the enthusiasm for bringing the better stock of our worldwide membership to one location will lead to other IOBA virtual fairs in the future, hopefully even well after the pandemic is gone from all of our lives. Happy hunting.
