About 20 Ants Fine Books IOBA

Specializing in Fine Press, Interesting Non-Fiction, Limited Editions, Literature, and Small Press.

20 Ants Fine Books offers fine press, small press, limited editions, literature, and eclectic categories that strike our fancy. Serving readers, collectors, and institutions since 1998.

I began selling books in 1995 as a sideline in a co-owned antiques and modern design open shop and on CompuServe and Usenet in those early days of online bookselling. I formed 20 Ants Fine Books in 1998, selling online and by catalog to my customer list. I maintain an intentionally minimal stock of books I consider to be of merit and interest. I've changed the focus of my stock more than once to accommodate changes in the market and now focus on building a stock of fine press books and examples of the book arts. As stated, I believe in presenting books of merit and offer collectors, at all levels, books and ephemera that may speak to them.

I have been a member of International Online Booksellers Association (IOBA) since 2004 and have served the organization in many ways: President in 2007, Editor of the IOBA Standard, member of the Internet Committee, and Webmaster. I'm contributing to the 'new' and see a bright future for what the site offers to the public and how it can serve the membership.
