Description: From Booklist
Rosenberg and Marcowitz, owners of Manhattan's Dog Lovers' Bookshop, gently introduce readers to the pleasures and intricacies of book TLC, along with not-so-random asides about canines. Carefully, they detail both friends of books (no direct sunlight, clean cloths, and sturdy level shelves) and foes (dust, insects, and the like) as well as simple cleaning and repairing. Nothing is complex--Elmer's Glue, for instance, rates as one of the best panaceas. And nothing is rushed--"dogs teach patience," the authors counsel. Everything here is absolutely dedicated to an enduring love of the printed page, accompanied by reflections on collecting, borrowing/lending, and enjoying the society around books. Head, tail, and spine above most nonfiction how-to's, this modest book deserves attention far beyond the universe of bibliomaniacs. Barbara Jacobs
