Two points east and the art of designer bookbinding

06 August 2019 - 29 August 2019
01:00 - 01:00
Norwich Cathedral Library
An exhibition of twenty bindings in response to Judith Ellis' book about maritime Norfolk.

To coincide with Seeing it Differently, this exhibition demonstrates how members of the Society of Bookbinders have seen and interpreted the text differently.

Open 6 - 29 August during regular library open times (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 9.30am to 4.30pm).

The books have been bound in many different ways, using leather, cloth, paper and even wood. Some binders have used traditional techniques and some have combined digitally produced designs printed onto bookcloth and paper. All the designs are lively, colourful and beautifully executed, ranging from the exquisitely simple to the complex and witty.

This is a rare opportunity to see the skill of the modern designer bookbinder applied to a book of great local relevance to anyone interested in Norfolk’s maritime past.
