An occasional newsletter about forthcoming books and events

March 2016

Unusually for us we shall be sending out three newsletters in quick succession in the coming weeks. This one lets you know about some events coming up soon at which we shall be appearing.

There will be a further newsletter about The Lost Colours of the Cyclades and another about the first volume of our study Printing at the University Press, Oxford, 1660-1780, both of which are currently at the binders and which we expect to publish in April or early May.


we will be at the
Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair

We look forward to meeting old friends and making new

1000-1800 on 9 April 2016

 New York

This is the third year this fair has been run but the first time we shall be exhibiting there.

We expect to have on show (and for sale) The Lost Colours of the Cyclades, tokonoma, Palladio's Homes, and Jump of the Manta Ray.


our books will be on show at
The Private Press Today

An exhibition of twenty UK presses, transferred from the recent show at St Bride

30 April to 30 June 2016
Gordon Russell Design Museum
15 Russell Square, Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7AP

I have always felt that books and furniture go together so it's a pleasure to see this about to happen at a forthcoming selling exhibition.

The Gordon Russell Design Museum in Broadway Worcestershire will be hosting an exhibition of private press books under the title ‘The Private Press Today’ which will feature the fine printing of twenty presses using a wide range of skills and techniques. It was originally shown at the St Bride Foundation in the autumn last year where it was presented by the Foundation in partnership with the Fine Press Book Association.

We will have on show (and for sale), tokonoma, Palladio's Homes, and Stockholm Reflections.

The exhibition is curated by Designer Bookbinders fellow Lester Capon and is sponsored by Bonhams. The exhibits will be displayed on the Gordon Russell furniture within the museum, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy both the stunning printing work and the museum collection.


we will be at the
Design and Craft Fair at West Dean

Our first time at this prestigious fair

3-5 June 2016
West Dean Gardens
near Chichester

We're very pleased to have been accepted for this fair, and will be one of over 100 stands, but probably the only one with books!

We find we have a certain novelty value at this type of event, though the downside is that we were once asked whether we could rebind a family bible and when we said we didn't do binding the question came 'well, what do you do?'

You can read more at the fair's website.
