The 55th Californian International Book Fair will be held  February 10 – 12, 2023, at the Pasadena Convention Center. The three-day event will feature fine and rare materials from around the globe, including manuscripts, modern first editions, children’s books, ephemera, maps and autographs, as well as antiquarian books on a vast array of topics.

I have published a few select works from the Daniel / Oliver Gallery. Founded in 2018, Daniel / Oliver is a New York based gallery with a primary focus on unique photographic archives, albums, and collections.

The gallery will be exhibiting at the 55th California International Antiquarian Book Fair, featuring unique photographic archives, albums, and images that touch on varying aspects of California’s history and relationship to the American West. 

Some of these works are available, or have been sold.
