In business since February 1986, we buy and sell quality art reference books of American, European and Latin-American artists. Our stock of about 5,000 volumes consists of rare, out-of-print and a few in-print art reference books, i.e. catalogues raisonnés, artist monographs, important catalogues of museum exhibitions, along with some literary first editions and original prints. Our main specialty are modern illustrated books, or "livres d'artistes", which are significant literary works illustrated with original lithographs, engravings and hand-colored or pochoir-painted plates by artists representing French Symbolism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Dada, Surrealism, German Expressionism, Russian Avant-Garde, American Abstract Expressionism and other modern art movements. As a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) and International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) with a proven track record of knowledge, experience and integrity, we follow the code of ethics required by these organizations. We also provide a predictable and repetitive service with a personal touch, helping our customers to get highest quality and value for the money spent. We consult our customers on building personal collections or purchasing a special gift.
