[BKARTS] Changes to American Publishers' Bindings Catalog

The catalog of the exhibition American Decorated Publishers' Bindings, 1872-1929 has undergone some important changes, but is still on schedule for publication this year. It will now include all the designs in the collection, including those added after the exhibition. This enlarges the number of records to 500. More than 80 designers are represented. There is one record for each cover design, but that may include more than one book, with variant editions or other titles using the same design.

The CD-ROM will now have a pdf of the Deluxe Edition. TWO SAMPLE PAGES ARE AT:

You can zoom way in with the magnifying glass tool. Try it! Also on the disk will be the data file in .xls and .txt (tab delimited) formats, .jpg images of all the books, and a browser-based illustrated checklist.

If you have not yet subscribed and wish to do so, the existing prices will remain in effect through September. Half the Limited Edition of 100 copies has already been pre-sold.

Subscribers also get immediate passcode access to a private website with the entire up to date fully illustrated checklist, access to downlaod the database, and the e-mail Subscribers' Newsletter. Past Newsletters are archived on the site. An example is at
