Debra Plett, Winnipeg, MB: Bookbinding
Venue Section: Eckhardt Hall/Main Floor
The intrinsic value of the written word is apparent when looking at the design and construction of hand bound books from the past. In stark contrast to the throw away culture of today, books of the past were built to last and be treasured. I seek to bring this old world quality of design, structure, and aesthetic beauty to the hand bound sketchbooks, journals, and artist’s books I create for today’s book lover.
