  1. Bookbinder of the Month: Derek Hood

    April 7, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    Revolution in Mind and Practice written by Robert Owen and was published by Effingham Wilson of London in 1849. Derek Hood created this fine binding as a commission for Lord Tom Sawyer as part of an exhibition of 12 books to celebrate 200 years of Socialism. A private viewing of the books was held at the House of Lords.

    Covered in multiple inlays over sculpted boards. The design follows a fluid path based around the letter ‘S’ which represents the word Society and Owen’s revolutionary view of what it could become. The circular movement around the central hole – the minds eye – simulates the flow of his cognitive thought process.
