Extreme Bookbinding with Lester Capon

February 23, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Our February social evening sees Lester Capon giving an illustrated talk about the Coptic Script of East Africa.

Lester Capon is a Fellow and past president of Designer Bookbinders. His work is represented in public and private collections worldwide, including the British Library; Pierpoint Library, New York and John Rylands Library, Manchester. His talk concerns his work as a conservator preserving a 6th Century manuscript in Ethiopia – the Garima Gospels and other early artefacts. It also describes the difficulties encountered whilst working in the northern Tigray region of Ethiopia.

Join us at St Bride’s Printing Library for a fantastic and insightful night.
