Hand-covered catalogues unveiled


The Viewfinder Photography Gallery in Greenwich, south east London, has just unveiled an innovative collection of exhibition catalogues - we are delighted to offer these bespoke catalogues to our visitors, photography lovers and book collectors.


The catalogues are produced using the latest print-on-demand techniques, hand-covered with traditional buckram (bookcloth) and ribbon, and feature a tipped-in print on the cover.

Besides using print on demand technology, in itself more environmentally responsible than traditional printing in bulk, the handbound cases are designed to hold catalogues from any exhibition which allows the gallery to produce copies to order and so minimise waste.

Bookbinding is something of a dying art and the Viewfinder Photography Gallery is proud to be supporting London bookbinders, and to be combining new print on demand technology with traditional craftsmanship.

Poets, journalists, art writers, academics and photographers contribute substantial texts for the catalogues, providing further background and research on each exhibition.


The catalogues are on sale now, priced £20, or £10 for the softback version without the case. Advance orders are also being taken for boxed sets of 10, priced at £180.
