June 2015

Society of Bookbinders Conference

One of the Conference speakers, Pamela Spitzmueller, has had to withdraw for health reasons. She is being replaced by Gary Frost from the USA, who is a highly experienced teacher and a conservator with a special interest in mediaeval bindings which can be used and applied in book arts. He was very influential on Keith Smith, whose books are widely used.

Other speakers include: Guy Begbie, George Boudalis, Sam Ellenport, Martin Frost, Chris Hicks, Trevor Lloyd, Dominic Riley (replacing David Sellars) and Chris Rowlatt.

We have also extended the period before the late booking fee applies to the end of June. The standard rate is £370 for full delegate SoB members, and £410 for non-members.
