These Aren’t the Rare Books You’re Looking For…

Actually, these are EXACTLY the books a few of our friends from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away came to see in the Rare Book Room at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library. 

While enjoying a fun-filled day at Buffalo Comics Fest 2010 at the Central Library, Chewbacca, Anakin Skywalker, Princess Leia and the whole Star Wars crew visited the rare book exhibit called The Ideal Book: William Morris and the Kelmscott Press.  (Who knew Chewbacca longed to quietly contemplate the delicate beauty of William Morris’ Kelmscott Chaucer?)

Our camera was even able to capture an exciting moment for R2-D2 – Princess Leia handed him his very first library card!

Afterwards, they all stopped by the Grosvenor Room to do some local history and genealogical research before boarding the Millennium Falcon and setting a course for Alderaan.
