Victorian Bookbinders Guild

For all interested in the Art, Craft and Practice of Bookbinding                                             

We had a great time as your committee representing Bookbinders at the Clunes Booktown  May5 2019. Official statistics were 15000 attended in the 2 days.  We spent our time  doing various book making tasks, case binding boxes, book stitching, and gold blocking. We gave away over 100 bookmarks with personal gold blocked  names  to the people who stopped by for a discussion.  See more about  Gold Blocking  hands on in the March 2019 meeting at West Hawthorn Uniting Church.
