Shepherds Bindery, London
SOLD OUT - Visit to Shepherd's Bindery & Talk on Antiquarian Books | Tuesday, 15. June 2021
MEMBERS ONLY - Shepherds Sangorski & Sutcliffe dates back to 1901 and is one of the few large bookbinding companies left in England specialising in fine binding, restoration and conservation. As well as being given rare access to view their workshop, we have pleasure in hearing a talk from Anthony Davis, member, bibliographer and book collector about the pleasures of forty-five years collecting historic and modern fine bindings. Anthony will bring along a selection of books for us to see including books with Royal ownership connections, bound and used in Westminster from the seventeenth century onwards and some contemporary designer bindings. The talk will be held at the Blue Orchid Rochester Hotel across the road from Shepherds. Refreshments available.
