Valentine’s Day & Lincoln’s Birthday Offerings at CODEX 2013

Rainer Maria Rilke
Abraham Lincoln
“Every thing that touches us, you
and me, takes us together…”

Rainer Maria Rilke
With malice toward none,
with charity for all..”
Abraham Lincoln

The dates of this year’s CODEX International Book Fair and Symposium fall near to two important events: The anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth on February 12th, and the celebration of St. Valentine’s Day on the 14th.

To commemorate these occasions we are offering two fine letterpress items: A limited edition broadside of Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, and our new fine-press Valentine’s card: a greeting-card sized edition of Rainer Maria Rilke’s Love Song (Liebeslied).

Both will be available at our CODEX table, in addition to our stock of finely printed timeless literature. Come join us at CODEX!
