betsy dadd à l'atelier
A wonderful visit from England.
October was marked by the visit of Betsy Dadd, a young and talented artist from England. Betsy's objective was to publish an artist's book (25 copies), while learning the basics of bookbinding and producing her copies during her one month stay in Montreal. If she had not encountered some unfortunate hard disk problems, she would have completed everything easily, that's how dedicated and hard working she was.
In the end, she succeeded in printing seven copies, stamping all her covers as well as binding a few copies.
Her book, entitled "Pencil on Paper, Drawings by Betsy Dadd" presents a series of drawings printed numerically and by hand. The text is by Lyndon Harrison.
To learn the basics of bindery work, Betsy created other unique and original drawings which she compiled into a small book called "One hundred and twenty people": that is how many there are in the book! A gem!
We hope to see her again, soon, here at the studio. A truly refreshing visit!
