To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Designer Bookbinders' all members
are invited to a private view at Leighton House, London. This is an
opportunity to view the exhibition where approximately forty bindings
by Fellows and Licentiates will be on display, but it will also be an
occasion to celebrate the anniversary amidst the distinctive
architecture of Leighton House.

members who will be coming to the private view so that we can cater
for refreshments accordingly. Please inform the Secretary, Joan
