Book Arts invite you to join us for a lecture by:


"Multiple Challenges (Tricks of the Trade) - Binding Editions"

Friday, May 5 at 6:00 pm.
At the
Center for Book Arts, 28 West 27th St., 3rd Floor,
New York, NY  10001, ph: 212-481-0295

A reception will follow the lecture.

Bookbinding since 1978, Carolyn Chadwick trained on the bench at the
European Bookbinding Company, a fine bindery in the English trade shop
tradition.  After 12 years there, Carolyn spent a year in the
conservation lab at New York Public Library and has operated her own
bindery since.  She specializes in leather edition work as well as
albums and presentation bindings.

Talk description:
Edition work challenges a binder on a number of different levels -
technique, speed and patience, consistency and quality - all without
going crazy from the repetition.  This slide lecture focuses on the
binding of a particular edition, William Tapply’s A Fly-Fishing Life,
and the use of templates in that work.  The limited edition was bound in
half leather, traditional in styling with five raised bands, but each
also had an actual hand-tied fishing fly mounted into the front board of
the book.  The slides proceed step by step from the very beginning
through the finishing work on the custom made slipcases.
