What our fans are saying about us:

One dealer, rare bookseller Sonny Ideker, “travels the world to build his offering of over 2500 antiquarian books. His set up is extremely impressive and presents the opportunity to step back in time, to personally see and touch works of literature one might never again find. Seeing his booth alone is worth the time and effort to attend the show,” (full article)
[Gail, THANKS! We enjoy your shows too!]

"If there was a Heaven this is it..."
(Wow, Melissa, THANKS!)

"You put mirth in my soul..."

[Rose, thank you for all your compliments, hope to see you again soon!]

" I became obsessed with Sonny Ideker's collection of rare and antique books. He let me dig in and really study them all. It was heaven spending time with these precious gems.
Some were from the 1600s!"

[THANKS! Claudia, we like
reading your blog too...]

"One of my favorite booths was bookseller Sonny Ideker's collection of antiquarian and rare leather and vellum bound books. Surrounded by all these books I felt temporarily removed from all the goings-on at Scott's. Looking at all these gorgeous bindings makes me think sometimes it's more than ok just to buy a book because it's pretty."
[ Well THANKS! Michele, we feel the same way]

"You were so very gracious and kind.  Additionally, your booth was amazing, attractive and eye candy for my soul."
[ Marlene, it was a pleasure meeting you too...]

and my favorite, from Lily, an (obviously)  intelligent  7 year old
from Dunwoody, GA:
" Wow! This is cooler than Disney World!"
[Lily, THANKS! You're cooler than any Disney Princess too...]
