Disappearing Art—the History and Craftsmanship of the Vanishing Fore-edge

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Immerse yourself in the magic of the vanishing fore-edge, where paintings fade into gold. Join acclaimed artist Martin Frost in a virtual webinar discussing the history of the vanishing fore-edge. Benefit from valuable insights and techniques derived from the artist’s extensive 57 years of expertise in this revered craft.

Martin Frost stands as a distinguished practitioner in this art form which has been officially recognized as ‘critically endangered’ by the British Heritage Crafts Association. Noteworthy accolades, including the prestigious title of ‘Maker of the Year’ bestowed by the British Heritage Crafts Association in 2017. As well as the national honor of the MBE in the New Year’s Honors list, personally presented by Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

This Webinar, like all offered by the American Bookbinders Museum, will be recorded. Recordings are  sent to all registered attendees following the webinar.
