Schlesinger Library (Harvard)
May 9th at 6:00pm
NEGBW is sponsoring a talk by Amy Lapidow and Stacie Dolin on their experience publishing their new book, The Book Arts Studio Handbook. The longtime North Bennet Street School bookbinding workshop instructors have put together projects; techniques; and tools from information gleaned from their teaching experiences. The interview style talk will be held in the Radcliffe Room of the Schlesinger Library at Harvard. We hope to see you there.
The book includes step by step instructions and each action is photographed so the technique can be seen as well as described. Opening sections show variations on the projects to encourage ideas for personalization. Intended as the bridge between traditional bookbinding instruction manuals and craft books, the authors show the why, as well as the how of the projects.
