Nicholas Pickwoad and the Ligatus project have announced a crowdfunding
initiative to preserve, catalog, and make available the extensive slide
archive of the late Christopher Clarkson, pioneering library conservator
and historian of bookbindings, teacher, mentor and long-time colleague and
friend to many of us reading this list.
Please visit the link below to learn more, and to donate to this important
project if you so choose.
By supporting this project, you will allow everyone to benefit from this
extraordinary collection, which forms an important part of [Chris’s]
legacy. The slides include his work in Florence after the floods in 1967,
his interest in the history of bookbinding, including images of medieval
bindings that have since been destroyed, his work as a book conservator,
his teaching, his interest in lettering and much, much more.
