FABS Bindings Zoom Group

November 20, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 8:50 pm EST

Sponsored by FABS


The Bindings special interest group meets at 4:30-5:50pm Pacific/7:30-8:50pm Eastern on the third Monday of the month.


Join FABS members interested in Bindings for a Presentation and Discussion about the Trevelyon Miscellany with Peter Geraty. The facsimile limited edition Trevelyon Miscellany was printed and bound to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Folger Shakespeare Library. Of the edition of two thousand, fifty were bound by hand in velvet at Praxis Bindery over the winter of 2006 – 2007. The project involved rethinking how one can bind an edition of books. New methods had to be developed to handle a large volume like this, such as sewing a “case binding” on raised cords. Old methods for stamping on velvet had to be rediscovered.

This program will not be recorded.
