You Can Judge a Book by Its Cover

The exhibition You Can Judge a Book by Its Cover celebrates the variety and beauty of the art of bookbinding with 33 different interpretations of the same book by a group of distinguished and talented bookbinders.

Together these 33 books highlight a wide spectrum of celebrated 20th-century bookbinding artists and the artistry of the miniature book.

John Tonkin’s miniature design is bound in the French simplified style.
Genevieve Baroness Von Hahn’s miniature design is bound in black morocco with pale veneer inlays.
