Really Important People to Know About by Ron Silver


Really Important People to Know About is a shortlist of 19 legendary minds worth knowing. This collection of watercolor portraits offers humble advice for the everyday reader inspired by notable intellectuals in Western and Eastern thought. Really Important People to Know About is the first of Ron Silver’s limited-edition books. Each pocket-sized copy is lovingly handmade in New York City and available to purchase at both Bubby’s Manhattan locations and online.

Each book was printed and hand-bound by Geoffrey Bridgman in NYC. Geoffrey is a bookbinder and lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Inspired by a love of old books, he first approached bookbinding as a way of presenting his own writing. He has been heavily inspired by the handbound grimoire tradition in the occult community and the culture around bookbinding. Geoffrey learned to make books at the Center for the Book Arts in New York City and began his trade running a limited edition press and writing collective called The Enthusiast.
