The 2000 Helen Warren DeGolyer

Bridwell Library of the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist
University is soliciting entries for the second Helen Warren DeGolyer
Triennial Exhibition & Award for American Bookbinding to be held in
Dallas, Texas in May 2000.  This Triennial has been established by the
Heirs of Helen Warren DeGolyer to honor her memory and love of the book
arts and to promote the art of fine bookbinding in the United States.
The award will be a $5000 commission to bind a Bridwell Library book;
Honorable Mention recipients will be awarded a cash prize of $500.  A
conference on bookbinding is scheduled to take place at Bridwell Library
in conjunction with the Exhibition opening in May 2000.

U.S. or abroad, and to resident aliens living in the U.S.

drawings, detail, design for edges, or notes about design.  A second
panel may be provided, if necessary, for design of doublures and/or
technical drawings.
Every artist must also submit one of her/his own design bindings,
preferably showing the binding structure and some decorative technique
which is to be used in the proposed design.  The submitted binding must
have been completed within the last five years.  Each entry book must be
submitted in a slipcase or protective box.  A book submitted in a
decorative box which forms part of the total design must also be placed
