Selections from a bookbinding competition organized by the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers debut in Boston at the Bromfield Gallery. The juried exhibition features work from members of the Guild of Book Workers and represent an array of interpretations of the set book, Pictorial Webster’s: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities.
An opening reception will be held on Friday October 7th. 6:30-8:30 pm. All are welcome! The reception will feature awards sponsored by Chronicle Books and North Bennet Street School, and remarks by the creator of the Pictorial Webster’s, John Carrera of Quercus Press.
Please note: There will be transportation to the gallery from the Park Plaza Hotel for those attending the annual GBW Standards of Excellence Conference. The reception takes place immediately following the annual meeting (5-6 pm). You may wish to stay longer in the gallery district as this event also coincides with the monthly “First Friday” open studios in SOWA, so please note that the area is just a short cab ride from the conference hotel.
