Reconstructing Diderot: Eighteenth Century French Bookbinding - Lecture TODAY

TODAY at 5pm will be a lecture given by Jeff Peachey, esteemed conservator, scholar and toolmaker, on eighteenth century French bookbinding as part of the Syracuse University Libraries Brodsky Series for the Advancement of Library Conservation. This was a pivotal time in bookbinding history when the  traditional centuries-old handcraft was being unsettled by a rush of machines and quicker production methods. The lecture will be held at Bird Library in the Graham Scholarly Commons, 222 Waverly Avenue, Syracuse, NY 13244. For more information, visit
