This Week in Bookplates 9/3/2017-Part Two

Yesterday I wrote about the Brooklyn Book Show.
This morning I received this Email from Cara Schlesinger  owner of the Faenwyl Bindery

"I hope to see you this weekend at the Brooklyn Antiquarian Book Fair, at Brooklyn's Expo Center in Greenpoint!
Do you have a book in need of special care - - repair or a protective slipcase or clamshell box? I'd be glad to talk with you about it at the fair. If you'd like to bring the book with you, please call me from the door at (917) 414-4575 and I'll come to walk you in.
I have a few passes for complimentary entry available for people who'd like a consultation - - reply to this email to let me know you're interested! "
