Re: Jack Sinclairs post re: MFA vs ...
In response to Peter's comments concerning bookbinding training, his
concept of a year or two apprenticeship is an excellent one, I think, but
then there are those like me who can't afford such luxury. I have never
figured out how I could finance such an education. However, I completely
agree with the idea that one does not learn bookbinding in a two week
workshop. I have been learning piece-meal since 1981 and I don't
consider myself knowledgeable about all aspects. I'm not convinced that
the old English 7 year apprenticship is not the best system. All of
those that I have crossed paths with who have been through that training
really know their field.
