Bridwell Library of Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist
AWARD FOR AMERICAN BOOKBINDING to take place in conjunction with a national
conference at Bridwell Library, June 15-17, 2000.

The exhibition is a juried show drawn from a competition to design a binding
for an important book in Bridwell's collections. The book for the second
Triennial is the first edition of James Joyce's, Ulysses--a seminal work,
recently named the most significant book of the twentieth century. Each
participating binder has submitted one binding as a sample of his/her work,
as well as an original design for Joyce's Ulysses. The First Prize, which
will be announced at the opening of the exhibition on June 16, 2000, is a
$5,000.00 commission to bind the book for Bridwell Library. Other prizes
will also be awarded on that evening. The exhibition consists of both the
sample bindings and the Ulysses designs from all the binders chosen for

 The conference includes presentations by Bridwell Conservator Sally Key and
by the winner of the 2000 DeGolyer Prize - Don Etherington - as well as
demonstrations on binding techniques by three notable American bookbinders:
Timothy C. Ely, Donald Glaister, and Laura Wait. The conference will also
provide plenty of time for fellowship and fun.

As a center for the book and the book arts, Bridwell Library hopes that this
regular national event will inspire and encourage the art of bookbinding in
the United States. We hope you will join us for the conference on
bookbinding June 15-17 at Bridwell Library in Dallas.
