Interpretation by Design: Contemporary Bookbindings by Stanley M. Sherman

Stanley Sherman is a bookbinder living and working in Washington, D.C. Trained as an architect, many of the bindings that he designs are for books on the history of town planning and architecture, but he also designs bindings for books on museums, painters, and manuscript illumination. Using a wide range of materials, Sherman creates bindings that provide a portal to the subject matter inside, seducing the reader with beautiful interpretations of their contents. Approximately 30 of his bindings were displayed.
