This episode of our Bookish Talk is a bit unusual because we have a guest. Rachel Ward-Sale is an award-winning bookbinder with many years of experience and the current president of the Designer Bookbinders.
This is the second part of our talk with Brenda Gallagher, a graphic designer and bookbinder from Boulder, Colorado. In this video, she shows some of her bindings and invites us to see her bookbinding workshop and printing studio.
Another bookbinding throwback. I made this binding some ten years ago or so. It was my second attempt on cover design with leather inlays. The first try was much-much simpler — I should probably show it some other time.
This week's scanned book is the third volume of the catalog of the library of René Descamps-Scrive. Last week I posted some excerpts from the first two volumes of the same catalog.
