Last week I was delighted to be able to visit the 23rd Annual Exhibition of Bookbinding and Conservation at Westminster School organised by Liveryman Dr Douglas East. And what an impressive exhibition it was - with some wonderful work on display, including a recent project binding in oak!
Whilst there I bumped into Douglas and I was most impressed to hear that he had received the honour of being a recipient of Maundy Money from Her Majesty the Queen earlier this year. And I thought that the rest of the company would be interested to hear this piece of news.
Here is a picture of Douglas after the service accompanied (on the left) by Tom Edlin, a History Master at Westminster School who also received Maundy Money, and (on the right) James Male, a distinguished Old Boy and Bookbinding student of Douglas.
