InsideOUT
An exhibition of Contemporary Bindings of Private Press Books from both sides of the Atlantic

Bonhams is pleased to announce InsideOUT: An exhibition of Contemporary Bindings of Private Press Books from both sides of the Atlantic.

The fifty nine binders in this exhibition were given a free choice from a list of texts supplied by nine private presses. Thirty four binders are UK based and twenty five are from North America. Four British and five North American presses agreed to participate, each providing a number of texts for the binders to select. Some binders chose the same text, producing fascinating and diverse interpretations of the same title. Thirteen of these titles have actual sheets supplied by the presses concerned and are displayed alongside the bindings so that the viewer can sample and enjoy the beauty and quality of printing that lies hidden between the covers. A further fifteen titles have been bound to augment the exhibit to a total of sixty five bindings.

Imagination abounds here, confirming that the art of bookbinding and hand press printing is thriving on both sides of the Atlantic.

A lavish, full colour catalogue accompanies the exhibition, and inludes illustrations of all the bindings on show, and profiles all the private presses with images of their masterful printing skills and design. The catalogue is available at most venues, and can also be purchased via the Designer Bookbinders website.
