Conservation by Design Limited (CXD) is inviting applications for
the 8th Annual Nicholas Hadgraft Memorial Scholarship.

The 2012 award, which covers the cost of attending the world
renowned Book Conservation Summer School in Montefiascone, Italy, is
open to students, skilled conservators and book binders interested
in honing their skills in a number of historically sympathetic
bookbinding conservation techniques.

Running throughout the month August 2012, each week of the summer
school features a different specialised course and tutor. This
year's class schedule will include the director of the Montefiascone
Project, Cheryl Porter, studying natural materials and processes to
re-create the Medieval colour palette, and freelance conservator and
consultant, Ana Beny, exploring the history of Spanish gothic wooden
binding structures in the "Mudejar" style. Bench-trained conservator
Julia Miller, who teaches historical binding structures, will be
lecturing on the Glazier Codex, a 5th and 6th Century Coptic binding
system, while owner of a New York City based studio Jeffrey S.
Peachey, will be take participants through the construction of a
typical full calf late eighteenth century French binding.

Application forms are now available from the CXD website


and must be completed and returned by the 30 April 2012.
