[BKARTS] Society of Bookbinders 2003 Competition

Cathy Adelman and Peter Verheyen tied for the "Harmatan Leather Award for
Best Forwarding" in the Society of Bookbinders' 2003 Bookbinding
Competition. Both books were in the "cased binding" category with Cathy
submitting a full leather, three-part, binding and Peter an edelpappband
(millimeter binding) covered in pastepaper with leather trim. Brenda
Parsons' leather with marbled paper sides binding was "Highly Commended" in
the same category. Dominic Riley received the 2nd Prize in the
"Restored/Conserved Binding" category for his rebacking. Interesting were
the judges comments which were posted on the site.
