Guild of Book Workers - 100th Anniversary Exhibition

The Guild of Book Workers 100th Anniversary Exhibition is hitting the road! Check the schedule here.

But, maybe you're like me and the closest it's coming is 800+ miles, so I won't be able to check it out in person. HOWEVER, do not fret, do not frown! You can see the exhibit online with huge detailed photos of each submission. My favorite: Melinda Padgett's Willa Cather, Death Comes for the Archbishop. I like traditional binding forms that are able to draw creatively on the themes/ elements/ whatever from the story within. This is fantastic and I would weep with joy to be able to put such a beautiful book on my shelf.

Don't forget to take a few minutes for the historic review of the Guild's previous submissions.

Hey, thanks for the heads up on this exhibition. I passed it on to a bookworker that I know, and I'm certain he'll pass it on to others.

Gorgeous stuff. I like your favorite too but, haven't finished perusing all of them. Problem: Exhibition dates of 2006 & 2007.
