Iliad Bookshop's August 2023 Newsletter (#79)

Hi Gang!

We hope you're surviving the heat and that any summer travels have been disaster-free (is that even possible anymore? My last trip involved one plane that arrived 8 hours late...yeah, that was fun. NOT.).

In case you're wondering if we'll have a Halloween t-shirt this year, the answer is a resounding YES! We've already seen the rough from our chosen artist, and we couldn't be happier with it - it's a wild one! As usual, the shirts should be available in October; as newsletter subscribers, you'll be the first to know when they're here!

Have you been following us on Instagram? We've been having fun recently posting everything from book maintenance tips to (surprise) cat pics. Follow us and join the fun!

We hope to see you soon, preferably IRL.

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...
