We wish to thank the Editor of the GBW Newsletter, President Jim-Ried
Cunningham and reporters who wrote a full report about Standards 2009 in
San Francisco, and for the fine photographs of the 2009 Standards of
Excellence in Hand Bookbinding conference in the December 2009 Newsletter.
It is important to note, however, that accompanying the photo of the
beautiful folded Oregami cranes on page 10, it be pointed out that the
wonderful "1000 Cranes" decorations for the banquet were the brainchild
and work of the Southern California contingent of the California Chapter
under the direction of Barbara Wood, with inspiration from Tini Miura.
Although many of the cranes were made in San Francisco, all credit for
those lovely garlands of cranes and Zen Garden table decorations goes to
them. Beautiful Japanese paper was donated, trays were hand-carried
from Japan, heavy bags of sand and carefully selected and polished
stones were transported, to San Francisco, and many hands strung the
The Hand Bookbinders of California, co-sponsors of Standards 2009 thank
the California Chapter for their many contribution to the festivities.
Signa Houghteling, for the
Local Arrangements Committee, San Francisco
