Description

Throughout the ages, every culture has created myths and legends which recount the great deeds of its heroes and their epic struggles with larger-than-life forces. Designer Bookbinders 3rd International Competition, held at the Bodleian Library in 2017, brings to life this theme though the inventive structures and creative designs of bookbinders worldwide. This beautifully designed catalogue is not only a celebration of the winning entries, but also a lavishly illustrated record of all the entrants from a broad range of countries. Following on from Bound for Success in 2009, and Prize Volumes in 2013, Heroic Works is the third volume in the Bodleian Library's series of publications which have documented these prestigious competitions. In this book, great classics of world literature, alongside modern texts, are given a new look through the consummate skills, seductive materials, and boundless inventiveness of the craft of bookbinding which is thriving in the world today
