The Booksellers brings us a fascinating insight into the world of rare book dealers. A dash of armchair travel, a big spoon of nostalgia, and more than a light pepper of eccentrics talking about what they love most in the world – all of it makes for one big recipe for a charming documentary that speaks of love and beauty
Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history.
Featuring interviews with such luminaries as Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese and going behind the covers with a range of rare book dealers, collectors and booksellers from such stores as The Strand, The Booksellers is a special treat for anyone in love with the written word.
