Sherborne Art Society lecture ‘Beautiful British Books’
December 5, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 6:45 pm
Dominic Riley tells the story of fine binding in Britain over the last hundred years. The journey begins with William Morris and the Kelmscourt Chaucer, possibly the last great book of the printed age. He will then show some of the amazing bindings from Sangorski and Sutcliffe, the finest bookbinders in the twentieth century, as well as work from their contemporaries. Dominic will then discuss the new world of Design Binding which emerged after the second world war, as modern design entered this ancient craft and finish with examples from some of the best artist bookbinders working today.
Digby Hall 3:30pm and 6:45pm
