Gotham Book Mart

The Times just published a really depressing account of the Gotham Book Mart auction. So much history... Gotham deserved church status.

my favorite bookmark is from Gotham Book Mart with what appears to be an Edward Gorey illustration - a bipedal sweater-clad cat holding a sign for the store. Discovered in a used book :)

That rings a bell. It probably was Edward Gorey since Gotham was famous for it's Gorey collection. I just remembered I had a few back issues of my 'zine at Gotham. I wonder if they got stuffed in a box with Joyce manuscripts...
