I always appreciate it when an author thanks librarians and libraries in their book, not for ego, but because it's important that they acknowledge, and that readers think about, the roles libraries and librarians play in research. So to return the favor, I'm acknowledging an author, Judy Siegel, who thanked me in her book, [Read My T-Shirt] for President...a True History of the Political Front--and Back.
She gave me a copy for myself and another for the library, so it should show up in WorldCat pretty soon. It's sort of funny that she should happen to give me the copy now, while I'm busily preparing a paper comparing zines and other self-published works for a conference I'm attending later this week. Siegel's book is clearly self-published, and with color photographs on nearly every page, it must have cost a lot to produce. It looks like a pretty neat book, and the funny political t-shirts alone will make it a good browse. And of course, I'm thrilled that she quoted extensively from two Barnard zines, Stockholm Syndrome by Jessica Stein and A Catastrophic Success edited by Lila Cugini, DW Lech, and Terrie Samundra.
More after I've read it.
