Bookbinding tour dedicated to Kyffin Williams

UK fans of bookbinding might be interested in a touring exhibition dedicated to Welsh artist Sir Kyffin Williams, who died a couple of years ago.

Members of the Designer Bookbinders organisation have created a commemorative book of essays and memoirs celebrating the artist’s work – Kyffin: A Celebration. Published by Gwasg Gregynog, there is a foreword from the Prince of Wales and the book is illustrated with a selection of the artist’s linocuts printed directly from the original blocks, including some unpublished works. Founded more than 50 years ago, the Designer Bookbinders group is dedicated to fine bookbinding. The exhibition tours from June to November.
