August Meeting 2018
Tuesday 28 August 2018, 19:00 - 21:00

August Meeting   with Julian Renard. Binding Examination, and Critical Evaluation.

At the August meeting Julian has requested we  each bring along a book or booksof our own, so we can discuss the quality of the works, with a close attention to binding quality and craftsmanship. The aim of this evaluation is to improve our ability to examine our own work, and perhaps also works we might want to buy. Critical evaluation ( which is not negative criticism )  is a skill we all need for our own work. It is the  the ability to see works against a standard, and to see below the surface to the reasons why the book is like it is. This allows us to  not simply  be content with what is,  but to  strive for improvement.
