FREDERIC W. GOUDY LECTURE ON THE BOOK ARTS

Dr. Nancy Tomasko
will present the Frederic W. Goudy Lecture
CHINESE BOOKS, JUST WHAT ARE THEY?
February 6, 1999 at 7:30 p.m.
Humanities Auditorium, Scripps College
Claremont, California
&
A Workshop on Chinese Bookbinding
February 6 and 7, 1999 from 10:00 to 5:00
$150, reservations required

This workshop on Chinese books emphasizes techniques
used by Chinese binders and conservators and the special
effects of working with papers from China. Using papers printed
with Chinese book page frames, each of you will
construct the following book forms: rough binding, string bound,
wrapped-back, butterfly with pasted spine, and
butterfly with spine edges free. We will also talk about
whirlwind bindings and the sutra fold binding.

Dr. Nancy Tomasko lives in New York and is the associate
editor of the East Asian Library Journal. The focus of her
current research is the material elements of the production
of traditionally bound Chinese books. In the spring of 1998
she taught a studio course on the history of the book in China
that included having the students make a portfolio of
traditional Chinese book forms.

You are invited to join Dr. Tomasko for dinner in Wilbur Hall
at 5:30 on February 6. Cost is $18.50.

Please send a check for the requisite amount to the
Scripps College Press, 1030 Columbia Avenue,
Claremont, CA 91711 by January 22.
For further information, contact
Kitty Maryatt, Director of the Scripps College Press, at

The Goudy Lecture is free and open to the public.
