ELIZABETH SOUTAR EXHIBITION
In my first email to you all as Chair and Secretary, let me say hello! I’m very much looking forward to being more involved with the Society, and getting to know you all better. Alison has been doing a great job and I’d like to extend my thanks again for her hard work over the last three years and for making herself available for all the questions I’ve had (and I’m sure will continue to have for a time!)
I’m writing to let you know that the annual Elizabeth Soutar Bookbinding Competition Prizegiving was last Thursday at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh, with the talented winners travelling from Germany and Spain to be there. The exhibition of the bindings is now open, showcasing all of this year’s entrants as well as winning bindings of previous years to mark the 25th year of the competition. There are at least two bindings from Scottish SoB members, so bonus points if you can spot them. It’s a fantastic chance to see a broad range of beautiful fine bindings from across Europe, and well worth a trip if you can manage it.
Have a great week, and I’ll look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.
Chair and Secretary
