From Pigskin to Paper

A new online exhibition at the University of Otago about the

history of bookbinding has just commenced, with a focus both

on explaining bookbinding terminology and showing examples

ranging from the earliest English binding in New Zealand (1482)

to 16th century European publishers’ bindings, Sangorski &

Sutcliffe to local Dunedin bookbinders. The exhibition ‘From

Pigskin to Paper: The Art and Craft of Bookbinding’ can be

accessed at www.otago.ac.nz/library/exhibitions/bindings
