is owned and operated by Brandon and Martie Rison, local history
buffs with a passion for books. The Rison's, both from northeast Kansas, host multiple Kansas history forums online. The most popular of these groups is the Topeka History Geeks
which highlights Topeka's past. Collectors themselves, the Risons have spent years building on their knowledge of antiquarian books. They are members of the Independent Online Booksellers Association
and Brandon is a graduate of the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar
. They are both writers and contribute to local publications. They regularly give presentations on
collecting, social media use, and a variety of other related topics for local
clubs and organizations. But most of all, they spend a lot of time with their books.
