Hand Bookbinder Exhibit

Hand Bookbinders of CaliforniaThe Mechanics' Institute, in its on-going quest to increase the value of membership, just put up an exhibit of handbound books on the 2nd floor of the library. Tuesday night they held a wine & cheese reception for library members & exhibitors. Members of the Hand Bookbinders of California gave demonstrations & talked about their projects, in the manner of a show-and-tell. A book restorer told us that a repair should never be made stronger than the original material. The principle sounds like it ought to apply in other situations as well.
