Comprised of 21 interviews of independent bookbinders, The Thread That Binds documents Pamela Leutz's quest to learn about the lives of representatives of this field. Each chapter tells a different story as Leutz discovers the challenges, successes, and "common threads" among each of the binders. Includes images offering a closer look at these bookbinders' studios, as well as photographs of the bookbinders themselves. All introductions are by Pamela Leutz, and also included is a special interview with bookbinder Don Etherington. An excellent pick for those considering working on their own in the field of bookbinding or for those simply interested in its history.
A native of Chicago, Pamela Leutz studied at The Craft Guild of Dallas. She later studied in Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Pamela taught bookbinding in Dallas for over 15 years and her bindings have been exhibited and are in collections in the USA and the Czech Republic. She currently lives and works in Colorado Springs, CO.
