ANNOUNCING THREE NEW LICENTIATES & A NEW HONORARY FELLOW TO OUR SOCIETY!

We are really pleased to announce the election of some new members to our society. Following the applications meeting that took place at the end of February, one new Honorary Fellow and three new Licentiates were appointed.

From our President, Stuart Brockman:

“It is with great pleasure Designer Bookbinders announce a new Honorary Fellow, Nesta Davies.

Nesta has been a strong contributor and valued officer of DB over many years. From the mid 1990’s she has served on the Executive Committee countless times, she is the former Editor of The New Bookbinder, has organised innumerable workshops and classes – currently Joint DB SoB Workshops and serving on the DB Education Committee. Nesta has worked tirelessly for the good of our society, this award is very much deserved. Many congratulations Nesta.”

Nesta joins the three new Licentiates: Kate Rochester, Toben Lewis and Andreas Maroulis. They join our other Licentiates taking the total up to nine, the most Designer Bookbinders has had in quite a few years! We really look forward to seeing much more of their work in competitions and exhibitions over the coming years, and will be doing individual features on each of them on our social media channels over the coming few weeks.
