InsideOUT Contemporary Bindings Exhibit

Circus, bound by Lester Capon

InsideOUT Contemporary Bindings of Private Press Books
September 11-December 13, 2014
Edison and Newman Room, Houghton Library
Please join us for an exhibition reception on Tuesday, November 4 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.at Houghton Library in the Edison and Newman Room. Remarks at 6:00 p.m.

Fifty-nine binders and nine private presses from North America, Canada and Britain have collaborated to form an exhibition which demonstrates the relationship of the binding design to the printed book. Because many of the binders have chosen the same title to work on, it also highlights the differing approaches to the same text. Samples of the texts and illustrations are shown alongside the bindings. The relationship between private presses and bookbinders is longstanding and it is hoped that this extra element to the show will provide the viewer with a more rounded appreciation of the work on display. The curator is Lester Capon, Fellow of Designer Bookbinders, the organization that sponsored the exhibition for which these bindings were created.

An illustrated catalog can be obtained from the Designer Bookbinders Online Shop: http://www.designerbookbinders.org.uk/online_shop/index.html
