CBBAG Newsletter / Books in sheets



The Canadian Book Binders and Book Artists Guild has started (with the
Spring issue) running a series of articles about typography and letterpress
printing. Included are articles about designing a "national" typeface to
celebrate the centennial of the Canadian Conferation (in 1967). The story
then goes into type design in Canada today. There are also stories on
"preserving the letterpress tradition" and "a love for letters" which deals
with the conflict between letterpress and computer typography.

There are also very good descriptions of the '93 GBW Standards Conference.
Included are reviews / how to's of all four presentations. These reviews
were written Shelagh Smith. These presentations were: Betsy Eldridge, Sewing
Variations; Bill Minter, Using the Hot Stamping Press: How To Get Better
Results; Sun Evrad, Simplified Binding Structure; Claire Maziarcyzk, Paste
Paper. Some of these reviews are quite detailed. Articles by the presentors
will appear in an upcoming issue.
