Edition Bookbinding
August 19th and 20th, Friday 9-5 and Saturday 10-5

The Guild of Book Workers, Rocky Mountain Chapter and the Book Arts
Program present Priscilla Spitler in a workshop focusing on the unique
problems associated with multiple or edition binding. Beginning with a
prototype casebound book, working from specifications, time-saving steps
are introduced including the construction and use of jigs for more
efficient and consistent production. The workshop focuses on the
importance of good planning, developing specific steps to carry through
the binding process, and teamwork. Creating a reasonable bidding process
and cultivating a professional relationship with printers, publishers,
or other clients is also discussed in detail. Participants learn that
edition binding can be quickly and efficiently accomplished with great
results. Priscilla Spitler received a BFA in printmaking from the
California College of Arts and Crafts, with a special interest in
lithography and letterpress printing. She received a certificate of
craft bookbinding from the London College of Printing. She worked as a
printer and binder at the Press of the Palace of the Governors, Museum
of New Mexico and then for Craig Jenson at BookLab, Inc. in Austin,
Texas, where she concentrated on edition binding. In 1995, she
established Hands On Bookbinding and specializes in small book and box
editions, and fine binding.
