About Arts Lecture - A Brief History of Bookbinding by Caroline Bendix

Most people can name a painter, sculptor or furniture maker but few can name a bookbinder. Yet binding may have the same level of craftsmanship as any painting, ceramic or textile. This lecture provides an overview of Western bookbinging including structure, the materials used and their manufacture.

Caroline Bendix is a library conservator, accredited through the Institute of Conservations. She has worked on over 500 collections in the UK and abroad, including St Catherine's Monastery, Sinai, advising on all aspects of books' care in situ. She has written three of the British Library's guides on preservation. Since 1992 Caroline has been the National Trust's Adviser on Libraries Conservation, the adviser and trainer for The ARts Society's Heritage Volunteers' projects and is on the advisory panel for the Lambeth Palace library.
