guild of bookworkers swap meet this Saturday



2nd Annual Guild of Book Workers Spring Swap Meet

Saturday, May 12, 2001
1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Bemis Hall
Lincoln, MA


Clean up your bench,
clear out your space,
make your world better...

Buy, sell, or trade your usable but unwanted items including tools,
paper,
type, etc.

Everyone is welcome to bring book-related tools, equipment, supplies,
paper,
cloth, leather, type, books, or anything else you may want to sell or
trade.
Tables will be set up to display merchandise.  This will be a chance to
mingle, haggle, and maybe pick up some bargains.

You don't have to sell things to join in the fun.

At 3pm David Lanning of Hewitt's Tannery will discuss the longevity of
leathers made for
bookbinding. He will examine the reasons why older leathers seem to last
longer than modern leathers; he will also describe the changes being
made to modern leather manufacturing techniques in hopes of restoring
durability to modern book leathers.

The annual meeting of the New England Chapter of the Guild of Book
Workers will be held immediately after David Lanning's presentation.

For more information, contact Beth Doyle, b.doyle@mindspring.com,
617-776-4988.
