All That Glitters Is Not Gold. Sometimes It’s A Book.


BLANK VERSO BOOKS has a hand selected collection of rare and unusual books and ephemera in many fields.
Our owners: Steven Hill has bought and sold collectible books for many years, as a collector, owner of a San Francisco bookstore (Ant Hill Books on Church St.), and as COO of an online book listing site, Bibliocity, that was a competitor of ABE until it was purchased by Alibris. His partner, Mara Fath, is a ceramic artist who has been fascinated with books since the fifth grade when she discovered a beautiful 1884 copy of Poe’s The Raven illustrated by Doré at her local library book sale, and has been buying and selling unusual books and ephemera ever since.
