Hi Gang!

If you've been around the store at night lately, you've seen our fantastic new parking lot lights, which are far brighter than our old ones (which were destroyed in the fire last November). As I write this, we're halfway through installation on our new main entry door, which is glass and will have automatic handicapped entry and a pulldown metal shutter for extra security. We're also still investigating camera/security systems.

In other words, despite the panoply of small disasters we've experienced over the last year (which included this last weekend's flash flood warning), we're coming back strong and looking forward to the rest of 2023.

We hope you're staying healthy, happy, dry and warm.

Have you ever noticed the big safe full of books behind Iliad's front counter? We get asked about it frequently. "Is it really old?" is a common question (the answer: no, we bought it new just a few years ago). But most customers want to know what kind of books merit storage in a safe (we think of these as the rarest of our rare books), so in this column we'll pick one book every month and tell you about it. This month's book is...
Panels for the Walls of Heaven by Kenneth Patchen. Limited hardback published by Bern Porter in 1946. Numbered 72/150 copies, signed on rear board, boards are hand-decorated by Patchen.

The boys had a little vacation at Dan's home in late February as we hosted a big television shoot in the store and then worked on the new doors; here they are snuggled up in a chair at Dan's place.
