Don’t miss the third biennial CODEX International Book Fair and Symposium on the campus of University of California, Berkeley. A gathering of the world’s finest private presses, book artisans, artists, curators, collectors, and scholars. International in scope and possibly the largest gathering of its kind in the world. You’ll be amazed at what you see there. BookLab II will be there sharing a table with our good friend Gaylord Schanilec.
Special kudos to BookLab II client, Russell Maret, who designed the poster for this years event.
A catalog from the show Craig W. Jensen: Master of Fine Edition Binding is available for $25.00 plus $4.00 for handling and postage (Continental US).
The catalog has an introduction by Priscilla Spitler and a Preface by Craig Jensen and was designed by Brad Hutchinson and features a letterpress printed dust jacket also by Brad Hutchinson. The contents were digitally produced. Each item is described in detail and illustrated in color. 125 copies available.
