Interview with Diana Hargrove of Studio of Books

When did you get started in bookselling?
I started in April of 2011.
What drew you to bookselling?
My library of reference materials for pottery and ceramics.
Did you have any mentors in becoming a bookseller?
Actually, no one person. In 2014 I went to CABS.
What are your specialties as a dealer?
I have, over the last few years, come to realize my main interest is non-fiction. I have many art and specially Ceramic books.
What's the most amazing book you've ever sold?
To date, I would say, Magic of Psychotronic Power, by Robert B. Stone.
What is your favorite part of being a bookseller?
The search for and discovery of a special book. Then having a customer who wants it.
Do you have an open storefront or have you in the past?
My shop is open by appointment.
If so, do/did you have any bookstore pets?
I have two pets who hang with me while I work. My Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Tinker and my grey free range cat called Yoda.
What do you personally like to read? Collect?
I don't currently have a favorite. I belong to a book group at the local college and we read mostly fiction and specifically southern writers. I have always collected reference materials for whatever I happened to work on at the time, like ceramics.
What's your favorite book you personally own? Would you sell it, if the price were right?
I will say,because of the engravings and the age, The Biblia Ectypa by Christoph Weigel, 1695. The whole bible story is beautifully executed in copper engravings. I would consider selling to an institution.
What one book would you buy if price were no object?
Catlin's North American Indian Portfolio, 1845.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could bring three books, what would they be?
The Collected Works of Robert Frost, The Wilderness Survival Guide, The Complete Paintings of the Louvre.
