Nice! Do we have a secret agent to take some photos? I didn't find the collection on Type Punch Matrix's site, though there is one photo of a small grouping here:

I know the booksellers - I'll check with them to see if they've got a full list.

The wonderful folks at TPM are going to send along a list next week, after the book fair.

>5 JBD1: Excellent! That's very generous of them.

Woah. Great.

Incredible overview of the Amy Winehouse collection here by Type Punch Matrix for those keen to see:

Oh yes, sorry I didn't update - they're still working on a list and will send it along!

Interesting! Let me check with the TPMers and make sure they're okay with us using this list, but if so, should be plenty of info to get started with.

Okay, we're good to go - I created an AmyWinehouse account and entered the first few books just to make sure Amazon/OverCat would do the trick, and they pretty much did with searching by author/title/date.

We'll use the sections as assigned by the catalogers as the tags. I don't see tremendous need to add the condition notes as Comments but there is some information about annotations, inscriptions, &c. that can be put in Comments: look at the books already entered for examples.

If you want to help, drop a comment to claim your section, and I'll send you the pw via message.

Sections up for grabs are:

If someone wants to work on a short bio, that would be great too; just let me know if you'd like to take that on.

And of course, if you have any questions, please ask! :-)

I have not worked with a legacy library before but am intrigued by this one. The Inspiration & Spirituality section would be of interest to me. Just need to know how to get started. Hope you don't mind a newbie.

Not at all - I'll message you the details, but basically you just log into the account and add the books as you would to your own library, with the tag provided. Watch for a message from me in a bit!

>15 witchyrichy: Thanks! I have received the message and will give it a try.

Dibs on the graphic novels! Will someone share the log-in? I don't see a flashmob page on the Wiki for this project

maj 3, 3:48 pm

I didn't do a wiki - will message you the pw

Done with the two sections of Graphic Novels

There was one I couldn't find a library/archive record for. Emailed my likeliest person to know, and he didn't know either. The auction lot description could be better:

Crusty Comix. 2008, chapbook/zine. Mostly in French. Website that's noted for publisher now defunct.

I've messaged the person with a candidate here on LT, but am waiting to hear back.

Hey -- why delete the condition notes? Not OK with TPM?

Redigerat: maj 5, 4:59 pm

No, as I noted in 14, I just don't think most of them add very much. The commentary and notes, fine, but the random notes on condition don't seem particularly relevant or interesting. I may revisit some of the ones that offer evidence of readership (candle wax and whatnot).

maj 5, 5:10 pm

I think they're interesting. Some of us may take a stronger interest than others in the physical object, so I always like to see condition notes when available, even if it's only "edgewear."

maj 5, 5:57 pm

Sure, but we generally haven't included them in other modern auctions either.
