Sponsored by FABS

 16 October, 2023 7:30-8:50pm eastern / 6:30-7:50pm midwest / 5:30-6:50pm mountain / 4:30-5:50pm pacific

Join FABS members interested in Bindings for a discussion about the Anatomy of a Book with lang ingalls, and about bindings that were created in a Peruvian penitentiary, with Jose Guerrero. These bindings are from the first half of the 20th c. and were made in South America. After the presentation, Jose has requested any insight on the materials, techniques and design that offer leads on books he shows. If you are a collector, librarian, conservator, binder or bookseller with focus on the first half of the 20th c. or books from South America, please join us—your input will be invaluable. If you aren’t associated in any way to these areas of interest, please join us as well: you may learn something new! This program will not be recorded. ~ The FABS Special Interest Group: Binding meets every third Monday of the month ~
