Official Trailer for Doc 'The Booksellers' About NYC's Rare Bookstores
"Collecting is about the hunt." Greenwich Ent. has released the official US trailer for The Booksellers, a documentary made by D.W. Young that first premiered at the New York Film Festival last year. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at New York City's rare book world. "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. [D.W. Young's film] The Booksellers takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers." This looks like an especially charming and geeky trip into the world of books. "For anyone who loves books, bookstores and the written word, D.W. Young's entrancing insider's entree into the charmingly esoteric world of book collecting and selling will be hard to put down." Jump in.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for D.W. Young's doc The Booksellers, direct from YouTube:

That was one of the idea of what I should do for living. Still, I'm surrounded by the books, read them a lot, buy them sometimes, borrow them and what not. As much as it's possible, this world is better place because of them...

Love books. Love reading. Have all my life starting the The Hardy Boys when I was 10 yrs. old. I still read. A lot. Perhaps an average of at least two books a week. I love the library system in L.A. A branch that serves all my needs is just a two block walk. I borrow from the library and return them and haven't bought a book in years and haven't even been in a book store in years. Not sure where any are anymore.

No, not really. I find dozens of places (online or in living environment) which are better than that. And still, a lot of books to read and discuss ...
