List FAQ

With the influx of so many new subscribers (we've topped 900) in the past
week or so, I've decided to send out this FAQ sheet again which will let you
know what's new on the Web and how to set your list options

"Our" homepage is located at <http://www.dreamscape.com/pdverhey>. Here you will
find a constantly updated list of "Book Arts Links" and resources including
tutorials as well as the Book Arts Gallery. The Book_Arts-L archives located at
CoOL can be accessed via the "Book_Arts-L FAQ" button on the main page or
directly at <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu> the home of CoOL (Conservation
Online). We are located under "mailing lists" about halfway down Walter's
list of offerings. Here you will find these instructions on permanent
display and the list archives.

New items which have been added include:

A Bibliography of Bookbinding Manuals
The Philobiblon of Richard de Bury
Basic Paper Treatments for Printed Book Materials: By Peter Verheyen
(Published in the Guild of Book Workers Journal, Spring 1991)
Repair of original cloth case bindings using Japanese paper: By Don Etherington.
Repair of broken leather joints using Japanese paper: By Don Etherington

Jane Conneen: Minature books and etchings. Nice depictions of her work.
Pamela Moore: "Book Imagery" by this American binder / artist now working in
Barcelona, Spain.
Tiny Tomes: The Charlotte M. Smith Collection of Miniature Books: an
exhibition of minature books from the University of Iowa Library

As always, if subscribers have suggestions for links, please let me know via
the "Feedback Form"

book-artists, there are also marblers, papermakers, printers, collectors,
curators in libraries, and people just interested in our wide and varied field.

vendors. If you are interested in subscribing to Book_Arts-L send a message
