Bookbinder's label

Bookbinder's label

This label was placed in books bound by David Vallance at his workshop at the Shore, Dunbar. The books were bound by Vallance to his customer's requirements; the mark acted as advertising and a reminder to the owner if repair was required.

This is a small paper sticker or label of yellow paper with black printed text in a black box. The text reads D VALLANCE BOOKBINDER SHORE DUNBAR. The label is in the corner of the inside cover of a leather bound book.

In East Lothian, professional bookbinders were working in at least Haddington and Dunbar in the eighteenth century. The profession continued to be represented in both places in the succeeding century. Changes in the book industry, new technology and the cost of traditional materials meant that few of the businesses continued for long in the 20th century.

Sarah Dare

Sarah Dare is acclimatising to her new home of Dungog after recently moving from England. She loves the light and warmth of Australia and her artist’s eye is learning the nuances of a new visual environment. Working in a printery as a young woman led Sarah into book binding which she practised professionally. She says that “What is fascinating about book repair work is that you never know what book you will come across next”. She had experienced this same sense of anticipation when working in an earlier career with antiques in London. Sarah creates “altered book” sculptures that combine sharp precision with gentle rhythms. She loves the materials she works with. The textures, patterns and colours of fabric, suede, leather, threads and papers are muted and subtle. This beautifully balances the structural complexity of her artworks.
