A board shear!

I am very excited to welcome this new to me board shear to my studio! A board shear is a super heavy duty paper cutter used by bookbinders for cutting the cover stock used to make hard cover books.

I was happy to host a very enthusiastic Aurora Historical Society Field Trip yesterday. Everyone enjoyed seeing the Heidelberg Windmill in action and printing bookmarks on the C&P.

Aurora Historical Society . . .

The Aurora Historical Society will be making a field trip to my studio on Monday, April 9, at 4:30pm! This event is free and open to the public, so please plan to join us at 2211 Moonshine Road (corner of Rt. 90 and Moonshine), in Aurora, New York. I will speak about my work, the equipment, and by popular demand, I will be running two different presses!

April 24th at 6pm I will be returning to the Seymour Library in Auburn, New York to speak about repairing old books and bookbinding! I will have examples to look at, but I encourage you to bring your own worn and well loved books too for us to talk about.

Recent Commission . . .

This rebind was returned to a very happy owner this afternoon! The gold stamped cloth was carefully pealed from the original cover and inlaid on a new strong cover. The cracked spine was repaired and this book lives on.
