Technology in the Conservation Lab: Bookbinding

Dawn Walus, Boston Athenæum Chief Conservator

In this introductory workshop, explore the basics of bookbinding through the creation of three simple bindings. Learn skills that you can take away and replicate at home.

All materials are included.

Enrollment is limited to 12.

This is the third in a series of five events dedicated to exploring different aspects of the art of the book. Join us for Order, Harmony, and Just A Little Surprise: An Apologia for Traditional Typography by John Kristensen, Artists’ Books at the Boston Athenæum by Stanley Cushing, Giambattista Bodoni: His Life and His World by Valerie Browne Lester, and Paper: Paging through History by Mark Kurlansky for multiple perspectives on the art, craft, and scholarship of books and bookmaking.
