Bonefolder Bind-O-Rama 2007
The Guild of Book Workers 100th Anniversary Exhibition Catalog
Initiated in 2004, the Bind-O-Rama challenge and online exhibition has become an annual event. To continue that tradition, the 2007 Bind-O-Rama will be a set book exhibition featuring the catalog to the Guild’s 100th anniversary exhibition. The
exhibition continues to be a great success as it travels across the US. Closing in Portland, OR on May 20, the exhibition will then travel to Dallas’ Bridwell Library before closing at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire in late November.
The bound catalog is already sold out, a first in Guild history, but there are still a good number of unbound copies left. What better way to bind them then for an exhibition. The unbound copies of the Guild’s 100th anniversary exhibition catalog can be ordered from the Guild of Book Workers for $30 that includes shipping and handling within the US. For orders outside the US, shipping costs will be provided.
This is an extremely “luscious” catalog and a must have for any bibliophile, bookbinder, or book artist. To see the quality of the illustrations, the
full exhibition can be viewed online at http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/gbw/gallery/100anniversary/contemp/contemp.shtml
Size: 8.5 x 11″ Vertical
Illustrations: The catalog depicts all 58 bindings in the retrospective exhibition and all 62 bindings in the juried exhibition of contemporary works. All illustrations are in color. The catalog includes introductions by Peter Verheyen, GBW Exhibitions Chair; Betsy Palmer Eldridge, GBW President; juror’s statements; complete binding descriptions; biographical statements. Design: The catalog was designed by Julie Leonard and Sara Sauers of Iowa City, IA, who designed the catalogs for the William Anthony, Fine Binder exhibition held at the University of Iowa and the Book of Origins: A survey of American fine binding.
