Tony Fothergill

As a young graduate I joined Ken Spelman Books in the summer of 1979, and since then have been a full-time bookseller, and in partnership with Peter Miller since 1984. 

I am active in both the ABA and PBFA, and am currently chairing the ABA Rare Book Fair London Committee, as well as long-time Fair Manager of the York National Book Fair.

These are changing times for the book trade, but I am an eternal optimist, and have seen the trade survive 'the end of our profession' many times. So I see the future as a challenge, but one to motivate and stimulate new ideas, and crucially bring on board new members for the Association.
