Simon Cutts’ talk, The Metaphor Books

To coincide with Printed in Norfolk, Simon Cutts gave his talk The Metaphor Books in NUCA’s Duke Street lecture theatre. Last presented in Granary Books, New York, the talk was a fascinating introduction to Cutts’ on-going project to explore the book as the physical metaphor for the poem itself. For the Q&A, Cutts was joined by bookbinder Stuart Settle, who recalled his days studying bookbinding in what was then Norwich Technical College. For over twenty years, Settle, who has worked in commercial bookbinding all his life, has fitted in binding jobs for Coracle in his spare time in the shed at the bottom of his garden.
