Introducing Type Punch Matrix
I’m excited to announce Type Punch Matrix, a new rare book company I’m co-founding with Rebecca Romney. Formerly of Bauman Rare Books and Honey & Wax Booksellers, you may recognize Rebecca from the History Channel's show Pawn Stars or her recent book: Printer's Error: Irreverent Stories from Book History (Harper Collins).
With a name that nods to Gutenberg, a modern style, and an approach that aims to make collecting both more accessible and more diverse, TPM will handle high-spots and classics alongside the innovative and the under-appreciated.
We are working now towards launching a gallery in downtown D.C. in spring of 2020. If you’d like to stay current on what happens next, just follow this link to sign up for the TPM mailing list. More updates to come. You can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Don’t worry. Brian Cassidy Bookseller isn’t going anywhere. While it will become part of the new company, it will otherwise run as it always has. Our new catalogue (#15 and first natively electronic) is just out, and we’ll return to our usual print catalogue schedule in the fall. You’ll continue to receive our periodic e-lists, and a long-overdue update to our website has just gone live (check it out). BCB will be exhibiting as usual at the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair in November — as well as California in February, and New York in March. In addition, we have several exciting archives in the works, and I am thrilled to have been invited to give the keynote at this year's York Antiquarian Book Seminar.
In the meantime let me take this opportunity to thank everyone for your support these past fifteen years. And special thanks to Amos Kennedy for printing the great TPM cards seen in the banner above.
