Book Description
JONES, Trevor, Angela James and Colin Hamilton (editors). The Bindings of Trevor Jones. 160pp., illustrations throughout. A very good hardback copy in dust-wrapper. 4to. Foss: Duval & Hamilton, 2015. This illustrated catalogue of 147 designer bindings by Trevor Jones of York, (1931 - 2012) was largely compiled from the binder's own records. The entries, which cover nearly 50 years of bindings, include photographs of each book, author and title information, a description of the binding itself, and comments Jones added in his Binder's Note. Jones was a highly innovative binder, not only in his approach to the binding he was working on and its relationship to the text, but in his use of materials. The descriptions include details of these materials, and a glossary gives definitions of these and other binder's terms. "This is a complete catalogue raisonne, with every binding (except one) reproduced in colour, many with Jones's own working notes (he was a punctual archivist of his work)...."
