As requested, here are a bunch of pictures of the Cathy Adelman binding I purchased in May 2014: The Bicycle Diaries by Richard Goodman with woodcuts by Gaylord Schanilec.
September 10th was like an orgy of bindings.
I saw so many bindings and spoke to so many binders in one day; it was sensory overload. It has taken me days to recover.
I started out in Somerville at Sheri’s place (Sheri is my editor), met Sonya Sheats in Cambridge, took the T with her to Boston to see La couleur du vent at NBSS. Sonya has a binding (which she doesn’t like) in the exhibit, but hadn’t had a chance to see it yet (more on that exhibit later). We ran into NBSS binding program director Jeff Altepeter on his way back from a coffee run for Dominic Riley, who was teaching at the school last week. We had arrived just in time for Dominic’s informal lecture about his life in fine art bookbinding. What a nice surprise! Sonya and I were allowed to sit in.
Here are the books that have been bound, and the number of copies of each book submitted. The binders were giving so many great choices. These are all beautiful publications.
