26 Bindings of the Pictorial Webster’s Dictionary

Thanks to our jury for their very hard work selecting the 26 bindings for our upcoming New England Chapter exhibition.  It was a challenging process to choose just 26 works from approximately 50 entries.  We appreciate that the jury put together a collection of work that truly defines this set book as a cohesive exhibition, which was as much a part of their charge as the recognition of individual craftsmanship and artistic design.

The 26 selected bindings will soon go before an honorary prize jury which will recognize a few of the works for individual honors.

Notices of acceptance (and the unfortunately necessary rejections) have been sent out.  If you have not yet received an email regarding the status of your entry please contact Jeff Altepeter immediately for clarification at

Please watch for information about the exhibition, which will open at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston in October in conjunction with the Guild of Book Workers conference.

Congratulations to all who were accepted and sincere thanks to all participants!
