Made me a little teary-eyed but you know that isn't too hard to achieve. I like the descriptions of the books, but why buy only one Finnish cartoon book? I wonder if Sigwart and my dad knew each other, given the books and computer science connections. --Kathy

great essay with touching juxtapositions. why have i never been in this shop? i'll need to remedy that when i'm next in dekalb. it takes a certain gift to find the books you do and appreciate them as much as you do as well.

Hi, Craig, Ok I'll have to visit Sigwart's now while up in DeKalb! I'm half way through the article when I reach over to the bookshelf by my bed and pull off Reg's What Kinda Cactus Izzat? 35th printing 1987, likely a Chambana used book store purchase.

best to you and your family, condolences, and cheers to all bookish book store browsers

Craig, this is so many things at once: a tribute, a eulogy, a wonderfully eccentric grab-bag of out-of-the-way titles and associations, and, finally, a moving meditation on the importance of sentiment and warmth and, yes, escape too.

My sincerest wishes--for solace, pain-ease, peace of heart, and happiness--to you and your family.
