Reminder of Dominic Riley Artist Talk

Design Matters: the creation of contemporary fine leather bindings
An Artist Talk by Dominic Riley
North Bennet Street School, Boston
Thursday, October 21, 2010
6:00-8:00 pm

With the advent of the Arts and Crafts movement bookbindings became works of art in themselves.  Dominic is one of a small number of bookbinders working today who create unique Design Bindings for collectors.  This lecture shows a range of these contemporary bindings, explaining how each design grew from a response to the text and illustrations of the printed book. 

Dominic’s design bindings are in collections worldwide. He is a Felow of Designer Bookbinders, and in 2008 he won both first prizes and the Mansfield Medal in the DB competition.

This lecture is free and open to the public, but please email workshop@nbss.org to reserve a seat.

This event is co-sponsored by North Bennet Street School and the New England Chapter of GBW.
