Ransom Center Senior Book Conservator Olivia Primanis is taking part in the Bibliophiles Lecture and Workshop Series at the Bridwell Library at SMU on March 5, 2004. Recently renamed in honor of founding Bridwell director and past Ransom Center director Decherd Turner, the series combines lectures on the history of books and printing with hands-on workshops in the book arts. Primanis's lecture and workshop is entitled "How Books Are Made, How They Deteriorate, and How To Fix Them," and will acquaint participants with book structure, discuss common problems, and demonstrate repair techniques one can do at home.
