Daumal books from Pier Marton
This photo comes from Pier Marton. Pier was one of the first people to send encouragement about this blog (for which I am eternally grateful). He's holding some of his Daumal collection. I've never seen some of those editions.
Pier also recommends A Seventh Man by John Berger, shown below with another Daumal book. In this interview, Berger says if he had to be judged it would be on A Seventh Man. [It seems to now be out-of-print, and there aren't many copies on the web.]
Pier's French friend also suggested Paludes by Andre Gide. I tracked down a translation, which I haven't had a chance to read yet. It's an early work.

BibliOdyssey is PK's gift to humanity. The book version is one of most incredible books in my collection.
Also enjoy PK's Flickr page. A random image from BibliOdyssey:

I discovered Lewis Jaffe's blog Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie this morning, which includes such things as Baudelaire's bookplate. It was fun to scroll through 2 years of posts in an hour.
