Speaking of bookbinding....

I enjoyed a visit to Nashville last weekend, giving a lecture on bookbinding at their public library's Special Collections Center. With 3 librarians and a number of book artists in attendance, it was a lively crowd, and the hour-and-a-half went by quickly. We talked about a variety of techniques, the future of the book, the demise of trade binderies and apprenticeships and the sad effect on quality, and even covered (briefly) the advertised topics!
