Bookbinding Talk and Workshop

Bookbinding Talk and Workshop by Audra Loyal

Humanities Montana, an organization which includes members of our community, brought Audra Loyal to Eureka! She gave a talk and workshop on bookbinding in the Sunburst meeting room at 100 Dewey Ave on January 20. The free hour talk on the history of bookbinding and the idea of books began at 5:30pm. This was followed by a two-hour workshop (6:30-8:30pm) where participants each made a book under Audra's tutelage. The cost for the workshop was $35/per and included all materials. Pre-registration was limited to ten participants.

Inside the Buttercup Market and Cafe in Missoula, Audra Loyal runs The Vespiary Book Restoration & Bindery which offers a wide range of books and conservation services. Do you have a great-grandmother's old cookbook that needs to be rebound? Or the family Bible? Or maybe you are looking for a very special one-of-a-kind journal for this very special year? Audra offers all this from her tiny shop. She also takes her knowledge and skills on the road through Humanities Montana to offer talks and workshops around the state. She explains how "books are elegant and ubiquitous pieces of technology that have been refined over hundreds of years" and leads audiences through the evolution of the book as object, its importance as a means of communication, the differences between physical and digital reading, and the proliferation of book-arts in the modern era.
