The Booksellers

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. They also play an underappreciated yet essential role in preserving history. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics, and dreamers.

"[A] charming documentary about the book world - or more specifically the book-as-object world, with antiquarian booksellers trying to reinvent themselves and their industry in a digital era."
