The Dusty Bookcase

Just out - The Dusty Bookcase (Biblioasis) by Brian Busby. Using posts from his The Dusty Bookcase blog, Mr Busby has told us the story of over a hundred (in his words) "forgotten, ignored and supressed" Canadian books. Among the books are sixteen that are the subject of this blog - Canadian paperbacks of the '40s and '50s. Bonus is cover and design by Seth.

Run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore and buy.
