Lansing, MI, April 1, 2012 - From 9:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the Lansing Center 75 dealers from 7 states will be offering for sale an incredible number of old books and paper items at the 55th Michigan Antiquarian Book & Paper Show.
3/23/12 2:07 PM CET
Twicea year book & paper enthusiasts of all kinds come together in Lansing to search through books, postcards, magazines, posters and more. If it’s on paper you’re likely to find it at the Michigan Antiquarian Book & Paper Show. This massive hunt for hidden treasure is “a mind-boggling experience”, as Bill Triola of Lansing said. “Like walking through the Library of Congress ...” Unlike the Library of Congress, you have the opportunity (for anywhere from 50 cents to $5,000) to take a piece of that history home with you. This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone from beginning collectors to die-hard history buffs with items dating back just a few years to centuries. If you're seeking a favorite book from childhood or a beloved poet, a historical map or a Civil War era newspaper, a 1950s car brochure or a classic movie poster - this is the place to be. You’ll find things you always wanted but never new existed. There is also plenty of seating, live music featuring Dan Kuczek on acoustic guitar, and a concessions stand. Admission is $4.50 per person; kids 13 and under get in for free. Join the fun at the Lansing Center, 333 East Michigan Avenue, on Sunday, April 1, for - as one customer put it - "nice, friendly people and, of course, lots and lots of interesting books".
