  1. When I lived in NYC from 1977-91, there were only two places in town for people with serious interest in automobiles. One was Gordon’s bookshop just off 5th avenue next to a famous hotel (whose name escapes me as I write this). Mr. Gordon had an excellent eye for automotive books and it was in his very small space that I first saw the large format books on Italian carrozzerias published in the 1980s. The other place was Jacques’s gallery located at the time in an equally small space on the Upper East Side. Always friendly and well informed, he had a great eye for magical objects, toys, posters etc. It was there I bought my first Geo Ham original poster and where I learned that there was a large subculture of automobilia collectors out there. Merci Jacques and happy to see that you are still going strong !
