Seven Roads 7/14/07 Description: 'Gallery of Book Trade Labels' and other projects Comments: "We must admit to having gone from 'coming across' the labels in our book-browsing to actually searching for them." Greg Kindall's "diverse set of interests" obviously includes old books and he's managed to accumulate quite a "virtual collection" of digitally scanned book trade labels, some of which go back to the mid-1800s. These "small and sometimes beautiful" labels found in the endpapers of old books are marvelous little artifacts for type lovers and book lovers alike. There's other interesting projects at Seven Roads, but the old labels are something else!
