North Bennet Street School // Set Book Interviews
Every graduating class from the full-time Bookbinding Department at North Bennet Street School will complete a design binding. Each year a text is chosen that each student will bind in their own unique style, this is referred to as the set book. Since I graduated in 2012, I’ve interviewed each student about their binding, discussing the concept and the process. Below is an archive of past years. Each interview series comes out in May.
