Join us for a lecture by James Reid-Cunningham BB '90: "Artistic Vision In Contemporary Bookbinding."
Traditional bookbinding decoration was transformed during the 20th century by the incorporation of modern art styles. The resulting "design bindings" are an evocative and complex balance of craft and imagination. This presentation surveys the history of binding decoration and innovations in 21st century bookbinding.
Join us at 6:00 pm for a reception, and the lecture itself will start at 7:00 pm. Free and open to the public.
