From Pigskin to Paper
A new online exhibition at the University of Otago about the
history of bookbinding has just commenced, with a focus both
on explaining bookbinding terminology and showing examples
ranging from the earliest English binding in New Zealand (1482)
to 16th century European publishers’ bindings, Sangorski &
Sutcliffe to local Dunedin bookbinders. The exhibition ‘From
Pigskin to Paper: The Art and Craft of Bookbinding’ can be
accessed at www.otago.ac.nz/library/exhibitions/bindings.
