Catherine Scriven's Book...(s)

Catherine's response to her book, the Royal Irish Academy – Todd Lecture Series dated 1892 was not just to re-make a book, but to remake one book into five!

We couldn't believe it when we opened the package and saw these beautiful books, each with a different binding, including beautiful Liberty printed fabric. The books are stitched, folded, rebound. One book contains paper handmade by Catherine from parts of  the original book. A truly wonderful collection of work by this talented artist.

Would you like to see these books for yourself? We will be telling you all about the upcoming Library of Lost Books exhibitions soon - watch this space!
