Three talks on bookish topics

October 12 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

Tony Mack: Bookcloth Production ‘Basically the talk is about my life in coating bookcloth mixed in with a little history of starch coated cotton and incorporating a brief description of how to make your own mix to fill your own bookcloth.’

Jill Sellars: A short history of paper marbling in Britain

‘I have been fascinated by the marbling process for years but have only recently looked into the  history of marbling in Britain.  In this talk with slides, I will show you what I have learnt.’

Barry Clark: William and Will Mellor

‘I have done a lot of research about the Bookbinders Trades Journal of the early 1900s and the father and son bookbinders who were the editor and illustrator. The son Will Mellor produced beautiful arts and crafts calligraphy, illustration and bindings.’
