[BKARTS] Trevor Lloyd - Hand Bookbinder of California Lecture, San Francisco, CA, 2/10/03

Please note the Book Club of California press release below.



The Book Club of California will present an illustrated slide talk by
the British bookbinder and restoration specialist Trevor Lloyd.

Lloyd will speak on February 10, 2003, at 7 p.m. in the SPUR Room, fifth
floor, 312 Sutter Street, San Francisco, California. Color slides of his
work will accompany the talk.

Trained at the famous and respected trade and custom bindery of
Sangorski and Sutcliffe of London, Lloyd has been restoring and binding
antiquarian books for collectors, dealers, and private libraries for
over twenty years, in the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Far
East. His studio and bindery are in County Powys, in the Welsh Marches.

His specialty training enables him to bind and restore antiquarian books
to exactly the style of their original period and country of origin.
His  historical approach emphasizes saving as much as possible of the
original binding.  New leathers are toned to exactly match existing
styles and colors. He uses his extensive collection of 18th, 19th, and
20th century finishing tools, patterns, and period papers to recreate
titles and ornaments. "De-foxing," paper cleaning, and paper repairs are
also within the scope of his complete approach to restoration and repair
and contribute to the correct "feel" of each finished book.

Lloyd's work includes incunabula, early books, period books, and edition
binding for finely printed modern editions.
