Spring[binding] Hath Sprung - A Worldwide Springback "Bind-O-Rama "

THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE

Long threatened with an untimely extinction, we seek to resurrect the
springback account book style,and promote its use as a canvas for creative
binding by organizing a worldwide springback "Bind-O-Rama," titled
Spring[binding] Hath Sprung.  While the title, timing, and play on words
may not seem serious, rest assured, we are serious about promoting this
style of binding.

In either the English or German tradition, design and complete a creative
springback binding. The book can be bound in any workable material (cloth,
leather, paper, ...), and incorporate any number of decorative techniques,
including edge treatments, visible structure and cut-outs, inlays and
onlays... The main intent of this exhibition is to have fun re-purposing
the technique.

Entries will be compiled into an online catalog, which will be viewable on
the Book Arts Web at <http://www.philobiblon.com>.

Entry deadline, September 1, 2004
