Priscilla Spitler - The Art of Bookbinding January 29, 2017
Priscilla Spitler will present an overview of her career as a hand bookbinder by highlighting specific design bindings, each evolving from experiments with book structure, by taking risks with materials, and even from accidents that led to new discoveries. Owner of Hands On Bookbinding in Truth or Consequences, Priscilla has been a book artist for more than 35 years. She is a two time winner of the Helen Warren DeGolyer Award for American Bookbinding, and in 2015 was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the national Guild of Book Workers.
