A lovely evening.
After getting to the Guildhall only a few minutes late I and the other bookbinders set out the books on plinths. After a little chat about where they should go everyone was happy.
What was really nice was being able to see the other books. To think that they had been made in a few weeks is very humbling.
Just in time, the reception hall began to fill with the good, the great and the authors.
Steve Toltz and A Fraction of the Whole. It was very nice to meet him. he said some pleasant things about the binding.....
One of the top things about the evening was, for the first time, the binders were seated at the authors table. The tension, the food and the chat.
The bindings will be on show at the Victoria and Albert Museum in the near future, please check out my other Blog for details when they are made available to me.
This will be last entry till next time. Bye...........
