24 April our meeting was at the State Libray behind the scenes in the Conservation Department
A night at the State Library.
A good group of 12 members and friends enjoyed a night with the conservators at the State Library, and we are thankful for the opportunity to see behind the scenes.
The facilities make us amateur binders drool, having ample space, great equipment, excellent natural light during the day, and pretty impressive artificial light as well.
Hi everyone, I will be standing down from my position of editor at the July AGM.

In this workshop we will explore the production methods of the oldest surviving complete codex books from the Nag Hammadi area of Egypt. These books show the migration of the scroll to the codex, and so have a significant place in the history of the book.
I will be opening my bindery as a trial on Thursday evenings in May to allow Guild members another option for their projects. The Bindery is small, allowing only 6 people plus myself if we want to do serious work. However happy to have others drop in and see the facilities.
