March Madness Sale at Potterton Books NY

What: the creme de la creme of design books but for less: 25% percent off new titles and 10% or more off rare and out-of-print titles

Where: Potterton Books New York in the lobby of the D&D Building, 979 3rd Avenue between East 58th and 59th - but you can call too! 212.644.2292

When: Starting Monday, March 16 through the 20th, 9:30am to 5:30pm

Why: Because a beautiful book can take you to far-away places for a lot less than a plane ticket. Because it's important to support local bookstores. Because it's on sale! Because you've always wanted a copy of Vogue's Book of Houses, Gardens, & People*, or Empress Bianca, the (alleged!) expose on Lily Safra, whose first printing was pulped because of its scandalous content.
