New book by Richard Horton



>From Richard Horton:

Making Albums for Photos and Paper Collectibles by Richard Horton with
illustrations by Gary Frost, is still available.  It gives instructions for
making 8 kinds of album leaves, safe for the materials mounted, and suitable
for display, along with production strategies for lab, bindery or small shop.


        I now have two additional books of use to book artists, conservators,
preservation librarians and small shop binders.

A Small Book of Practical Sewings by Richard Horton is a bench guide to
several major book sewings from 1200 to the present.  The book covers
link stitches, sewings over tapes, and sewings on sunken or raised,
single or double, supports of many materials, including the herringbone
stitch and packed stitches.  A class of talented amateurs completed all
the sewings in the book without my assistance.

Historical Photo Albums and Their Structures by Richard Horton, was
presented at the AIC joint BPG/PMG session in St. Louis in June of 1999.
Based on a structure and mounting survey of over 300 albums at the
Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center in Austin, Texas, this book
establishes major historical structural categories for albums, and links
them to evolving photographic processes and their marketing.  The drawings
help curators understand album structures and are sufficiently detailed
to allow designers to make new albums using old strategies.
