Book Binder

We went to see some book binding techniques demonstrated by bookbinder and artist Helen Gibbs. She is currently based at the University of Brighton where she runs a book making course. As well as working with artists to create books of their art work, she also creates books that are art in themselves, including using the complete works of Shakespeare as a pinhole camera to take photographs in various libraries.

Helen helped us bind our books for the Press and Release exhibition, including rebinding the shot pages of Xelis de Toro’s book.
