One of the aims of the Bristol Arts Faculty Book Cluster is to build connections within the region with people outside of or adjacent to academia who are interested in or who work with books as material objects. We’re doing this through a series of interviews with book culture professionals which will be posted in a semi-regular fashion on this site.
The first of our interviewees were Nigel Tasker and Ruth Cole of Alfred Harris Bookbinders. Back in November, Rhiannon Daniels went to visit them in their premises, just a stone’s throw away from the university on Kingsdown Parade. Go here to our Interviews page to see pictures of that visit, and to find out what Nigel and Ruth had to say about their working lives, and what they think about the past, present and future of books in Bristol and beyond.
