Traditional Western Bookbinding and Conservation Student Work Exhibition



“Traditional Western Bookbinding and Conservation Student Work Exhibition” is opening on November 7, at Kent Wong Exhibition Gallery, USJ.

It has been three years since the “Traditional Western Bookbinding, Student’s Work Exhibition” in 2017. Macao Institute of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Relics (MICRCR), collaborates with the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) with the support of Macao Design Centre, to once again, organise the “Traditional Western Bookbinding and Conservation Student Work Exhibition”.

The exhibition has four parts. The first part mainly exhibits sample books bound by our students and their sharing of class experiences. The second part showcases restored book samples and their restoration reports. The third part is a workstation of restoration. Students perform restoration techniques and are available to answer questions in different time slots. The fourth part is a consultation service for general public to bring along some rare books for “medical consultation”. During the exhibition, a series of seminars and workshops are organised for general public.
