Bibliographies of Reference Works

These bibliographies can form the foundation for learning about the many facets of the book arts and building ones own reference library.

While there is a tremendous wealth of information on the Web, much more (often the most authoritative) is available only in print. Journal articles can be gotten through inter-library loan, and books can be found at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, through various antiquarian dealers via Bookfinder, or on eBay.
