This year’s 2013 Book Arts Web Annual Online Exhibition allows you to take a sneak peak inside historical binding styles as well as appreciate the skill and creativity of a wide variety of artists. Here are a few of the photos to pique your curiosity. If you go to the website you’ll see bios, explanations about the bindings and why the artist chose the binding they did.
If you haven’t yet joined the Book Arts ListServ, I can’t emphasize enough what an outstanding this resource is for book artists. Go ahead, take a moment and join now.
Thank you to Peter D. Verheyen for all that he does for the Book Arts community.
