Designer Bookbinders Competition 2006

The annual Designer Bookbinder Competition was judged at the end of November and the award ceremony was held on the 8th December at the British Library at St. Pancreas. The standard of design and the quality of binding seems to improve year on year.

We are very pleased to announce that the 2006 J. Hewit & Son prize for 'The Interesting Treatment of Leather' was awarded to Kate Holland, a binder from Somerset.

The prize was very well deserved for her beautifully bright and 'sunny' binding of Elizabeth David's A Book of Mediterranean Foods, published by The Folio Society. Our warmest congratulations go to Kate.
