Eureka Books is exhibiting broadsides of local poets, Jerry Martien and Jim Dodge, along with international writers such as Margaret Atwood and Thich Nhat Hanh, and local artist Amy Uyeki, through April.
Join us tonight for Arts Alive! and check out some vintage prints by illustrator W.W. Denslow. Perhaps most recognized for the illustrations in L. Frank Baum’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the prints tonight are from St. Nicholas, a magazine for boys and girls, circa 1909.
We've got a towering stack of flower prints by Pierre Joseph Redouté and we're selling them cheap. These beauties are matted, wrapped and ready for framing. They're marked at $4 each or 8 for $20. Our selection is huge, our prices low. Come see.
If you prefer that your flower art be bound in sturdy hardbacks for page-flipping afternoons spent waiting for the season to turn, you're in luck! We've got a selection of botanical prints in coffeetable book form, including Redouté. And like the prints, they're priced to move.
Just in: Nineteen bound volumes of the Illustrated London News, the most elaborate British news magazine of the 19th century. Each weekly issue had dozens of engravings and many had large, fold-out maps and views of far-off cities. The bound volumes (dating from the 1850s, 1880s, and 1890s, each contain roughly 26 weekly issues). We’ve put a sampling on our central table. It’s hard to imagine the work that went into hand engraving each of the thousands of images in every volume.
You will also find on the central table a nice (but quickly dwindling) collection of books on Japan and Japanese art. These are flying out of the store. We also acquired this week a large collection of Talbot Mundy, a smaller grouping of Gene Stratton-Porter, and a handful of Elizabeth Goudge titles.
