Booksellers, The

A lively, behind-the-scenes look at the New York rare book world and the fascinating people who inhabit it from director D.W. Young.

THE BOOKSELLERS dives into the fascinating world of rare book dealers and collectors. Dreamers, intellectuals, eccentrics, these antiquarians play an essential role in preserving the history and future of the printed word. A loving celebration of book culture, the documentary offers a rare glimpse of many unique objects and the obsessive hunt for the next great find; from Da Vinci’s The Codex Leicester (the most expensive book ever sold) to essential early hip-hop documents.

Featuring interviews with such luminaries as Fran Lebowitz, Susan Orlean, Gay Talese and going behind the covers with a range of rare book dealers, collectors and booksellers from such stores as The Strand, THE BOOKSELLERS is a special treat for anyone in love with the written word.
