RK just learned our old friend Denis Marquand has passed away.
We first met Dennis more than 35 years ago and throughout that time were always pleased with our contact.
Dennis was a good guy, the best of the booksellers who specialized in carpet books and publications.
He was a generous, affable, charming man and we are glad to have known him.
His website -- http://rugbooks.com -- is in our, and many other peoples, opinion the best place to search carpet literature. The site is informative and extensive.
Dennis's son Wesley has been taking care of the business for some years and will, we understand, continue.
We send our professional and personal condolences.
