Reviews

Printer's Error is an entertaining entry in the always fascinating books-about-books genre. The Romneys make good on the irreverent premise that `the printed word is glorious, but it's also nuts.' How, they ask, can that be so? `Because we are gloriously nuts.' It's a keeper. -- Nicholas A. Basbanes, author of <i>A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books and On Paper: The Everything of its Two Thousand Year History by a Self-Confessed Bibliophiliac</i> Who knew the printed book could be so fun? J. P. and Rebecca have written a real page turner. Printer's Error is truly a rare treasure. -- Rick Harrison, author of <em>License to Pawn</em> and star of <em>Pawn Stars</em> Captivating. It's like standing in line and overhearing an animated conversation just ahead of you about the secret world of rare books-and hoping you hear it all before they get to the front of the line and wander off someplace else! -- John Simpson, author of <em>The Word Detective</em> Written in an engaging, accessible style, these accounts will appeal to fans of Pawn Stars, as well as scholars of literature and printing history. -- Library Journal
