Book Arts on the Web
Having recently changed providers here in central Ontario, as some of you
know, I now have access to the visual part of the net and I've gone crazy
(bear with me here). Quickly realizing that, while I'm having fun, I'm also
wasting my time, I went looking for all the book-arts-related web sites I
could find. Not many: here's a list:
The Center for Book Arts
Women's Studio Workshop
I've also found digital type foundries, pictures from the Book of Kells,
references to marbelizing (sic) paper, graphics archives, a dictionary of
descriptive bibliography, a method of archivally-photocopying and -binding
pulp paperbacks, conservation resources, libraries, etc. There is one
letterpress hobby printer connected with a drama group at a college in New
York (? Rilsey) and a defunct pointer to a Friends of the Printing Museum
in NYC. But no calligraphers or papermakers. No leatherworkers or
parchmenters or gold beaters or tool makers. Maybe they're not out there.
Maybe I just haven't found them.
Can anybody help? Do you know of any other book artists or binders or
printers on the WWW. Please reply to me directly and if I get any responses
I'll compile a directory for posting to the list or mail it back to those
Also, I haven't read much from the Book_Arts-L people lately and wonder if
we are mostly academics, away until September, or is everyone just away?
