Talks by US and UK binders of the La Prose du Transsibérien recreations now on YouTube

Deluxe edition bookbinding

Twenty-five binders from the USA, Canada and the UK were commissioned to bind a copy of a facsimile of the 1913 La Prose du Transsibérien by Sonia Delaunay and Blaise Cendrars, published in 2018 by Two Hands Press. The exhibit commenced in 2019 in San Francisco, travelled to Los Angeles and Boston in 2020, and was shown virtually at Minnesota Center for the Book in 2021. The exhibit has been curated by Kitty Maryatt, with Simon Eccles and Toby Schwartzburg as Co-Curators.

On Saturday 2nd October, Designer Bookbinders facilitated an online event where the participating US and UK binders of the facsimile of La Prose du Transsibérien discussed the process of designing and executing their bindings. The event, which was moderated by Kitty Maryatt, the creator of the facsimile, was recorded and is now available to view on YouTube.
