Bonefolder Bind-O-Rama 2007
The Guild of Book Workers 100th Anniversary Exhibition Catalog

Initiated in 2004, the Bind-O-Rama challenge and online exhibition 
has become an annual event. To continue that tradition, the 2007 
Bind-O-Rama will be a set book exhibition featuring the catalog to 
the Guild's 100th anniversary exhibition. The exhibition continues to 
be a great success as it travels across the US. Closing in Portland, 
OR on May 20, the exhibition will then travel to Dallas' Bridwell 
Library before closing at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire in late November.

The bound catalog is already sold out, a first in Guild history, but 
there are still a good number of unbound copies left. What better way 
to bind them then for an exhibition. The unbound copies of the 
Guild's 100th anniversary exhibition catalog can be ordered from the 
Guild of Book Workers for $30 that includes shipping and handling 
within the US. For orders outside the US, shipping costs will be provided.

This is an extremely "luscious" catalog and a must have for any 
bibliophile, bookbinder, or book artist. To see the quality of the 
illustrations, the full exhibition can be viewed online at 

Catalog Specifications:

Size: 8.5 x 11" Vertical

Pages: 112

Illustrations: The catalog depicts all 58 bindings in the 
retrospective exhibition and all 62 bindings in the juried exhibition 
of contemporary works. All illustrations are in color. The catalog

binding descriptions; biographical statements.

Design: The catalog was designed by Julie Leonard and Sara Sauers of 
Iowa City, IA, who designed the catalogs for the William Anthony, 
Fine Binder exhibition held at the University of Iowa and the Book of 
Origins: A survey of American fine binding.
