Back in May, Swann was pleased to offer some outstanding examples of graphic design, typography and advertising art from the inventory of the late book dealer Irving Oaklander. Interest was so strong, we wanted to get the word out that we will be auctioning the majority of his remaining inventory as part of our summer Shelf Sale, Thursday, August 22.
There will be large groups of important reference works, primary source material including first editions, uncommon journals and magazines on graphic design, printing and typography, the book arts and advertising.
Take a look at the general shelf list and exhibition hours, but be aware that there are no itemized descriptions available, and you should come in today, tomorrow or Thursday morning to review for yourself.
