Check the British Library and see if the books from their annual binding
competition are still on exhibit. I saw them just before Christmas and
some of the submissions are spectacular. This year's set piece is the
Folio Society's edition of Ovid's Metamorphosis, and the binders went all
out on it.
Also, check with the Russell Hotel (off Russell Square) while you're in
London, and see if you overlap with the monthly PBFA book fair held there.
