Spring is here, and the Book Elves are in full fettle, putting away sleds 
and shovels and dragging out the barbecue, lawn furniture and hammocks. But 
before they dis-assembled the last snowman out front and tried to stuff him 
into the freezer, they finished a new printed catalog of our latest 

"Recent Acquisitions & other Interesting Books for March-April, 2006"
is now available as a printed catalog, and is also available on our website-

This catalog features a selection of 122 books on furniture, ceramics,
