Books and bookbinding links:

American Printing House for the Blind 
American Printing House for the Blind producer of braille, audio, and other publishing products for the sight-impaired. Founded 1858 in Louisville, Kentucky, APH employs a significant number of sight-impaired persons in their production plant and maintains the Louis Database of accessible materials and file repositories. 

American Booksellers Exchange 
American Book Exchange catalogs more than 40 million used books available from booksellers around the world. ABE adds a small commission to each sale, but the majority of out-of-print and hard-to-find books are still great bargains!

Powell's Books 
Visit the Rare and Collectible "book room" on Powell's Web site. Powell's began as a used book dealer in 1970. The inventory grew so large, the store was moved to Portland, Oregon into a former automobile dealership. Powell's now sells both new and used books.


Alibris Booksellers 
alibris carries new, used, rare, and out-of-print books. It is one of the better sites for finding books for children and has many specialty topic areas.

Bookfinder is a search engine indexing the inventories of 40,000 individual and commercial book sellers around the world. Started by two University of California students as a class project, Bookfinder now searches in multiple languages and recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. 

International Book Collectors Association 
The International Book Collectors Association site is a treasure chest of useful information for all book lovers, even though the information is aimed chiefly toward collectors. A step-by-step method for doing your own informal appraisal of an antique book is one of their most popular features.

About book collecting 
The Mining Company's "about" pages contain lots of useful information for book collectors, an appraisal FAQ, and tips for buying and selling used books.
