Thursday was packed with meetings and I took far fewer photos. The NBS Board meeting began at 11:30, and it was great to see everyone. Outgoing treasurer Chuck Heck gave a report on our finances, and we're in good shape assuming our charity auctions and website partnerships continue to augment dues income.
The NBS Symposium was next with speaker Harry Salyards discussing his new book, Eagle Poised On A Bank Of Clouds : The United States Silver Dollars Of 1795-1798. Here are some photos of the audience and speaker.
Here are photos of the two sides of the massive bourse floor taken from the skybridge. Impressive. That's the exhibit area with the yellow tablecloths in the upper-left part of the first photo.
Here's some more Heinz artwork in a pop art Warhol/Haring style.
Near the end of the afternoon I visited numismatic artist Robert Julian (not to be confused with the numismatic researcher and author of the same name). He creates excellent work.

Thursday night I attended a wonderful dinner of the Attinelli Society, a group of fellow bibliophiles. My guest was Gosia Fort, whose husband Tom once edited our print journal, The Asylum.
