#78 The Book on the Chair by Mathi Page. Nagoya, Japan: Masako Ishiguro, 2017. $65
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
The Book on the Chair is a pop-up book that, when closed, acts as a cushion on a handcrafted wooden chair. Reverse the cushion and open the book to reveal 6 different styles of armchair, each with a book lying open on it. A clever and fun design, nicely made, by Masako Ishiguru of Japan.
Catalog 76 has a separate section devoted to old almanacs and calendars. See page 2 for photos and descriptions of all five examples.

Msgr. Francis J. Weber is no longer publishing (or so he says!) but in early 2018 he wrote and published Cigar Bands and I finally received a few copies. It’s an interesting history of this collecting category and each book is letterpress printed and illustrated with an authentic La Fendrich cigar band. See item #69.
