And the Winners Are…

Remember back in February I announced the Second EARA International Bookbinding Competition run out of Buenos Aires, Argentina?

The winners were revealed on November 14th. Thanks to one of the sponsors, Eduardo Tarrico, I have the pleasure of showing pictures of the winning bindings. Keep an eye on these binders. They are going places.
