Bridwell Library of the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist
University, Dallas, Texas, announces the 2009 Helen Warren DeGolyer
Triennial Competition for American Bookbinding.  The book for the fifth
triennial competition is John Graves's Goodbye to a River: A Narrative,
one of 550 copies printed by W. Thomas Taylor in Austin, Texas, for the
Thirtieth Anniversary Edition published in 1989 by the Book Club of
Texas.  Often compared to Walden by Henry David Thoreau, Goodbye to a
River is acclaimed for its beautiful prose, naturalist philosophy, and
original style.  In 1961 the work won the Carr P. Collins Award of the
Texas Institute of Letters and was nominated for a National Book Award.
The juried competition will consist of both completed example bindings
and the proposed designs for Goodbye to a River.  It is open to all
bookbinders who are American citizens living in either the U.S. or
abroad.  The winner of the DeGolyer Award for American Bookbinding will
be awarded the Grand Prize and $6,000 Binding Commission.  For more
