Catalogue for Designer Bookbinders
International Competition 2013
With Shakespeare as the inspiration for Designer Bookbinders 2nd International Competition, this lavish catalogue features contemporary design on the subject of the Great Bard from some of the best binders worldwide. A sister volume to the previous Bound for Success catalogue in 2009, it beautifully illustrates all 253 entries from this prestigious competition held again by Designer Bookbinders at the Bodleian Library, Oxford in 2013. This publication is not only a celebration of the prizewinners and a companion to the exhibition at the Bodleian Library, but also an invaluable record and impressive showcase of the creativity, skill and craftsmanship of a thriving bookbinding community throughout the world in the twenty-first century.
