A reception hosted by NBSS and the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers will be held on July 18, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 at NBSS and will be open to the public.

ARA Canada in partnership with the École Estienne, organized an international exhibition of bookbinding that originated in Paris and traveled to Quebec City, Montreal and Trois-Rivières. This exhibit includes the work of fifty-one binders. The invitation to participate was extended to former students of the Ecole Estienne in Paris and member bookbinders of ARA Canada.

The book selected for this project is titled La couleur du vent (The color of the wind). It is a collection of poems by Gilles Vigneault, illustrated and designed by Nastassja Imiolek under the artistic direction of Cécile Côté.

Visit the project website to view the bindings and learn about the artists.

The exhibit is made possible through Les Amis de la Reliure d’Art du Canada (Friends of the Art of Bookbinding of Canada) and Ecole Estienne, France.
