The N.O.B.S. Forum for March of 2016 will be a presentation by local artisan bookbinder and NOBS board member Ellen Strong on Margaret Neilson Armstrong (1867-1944), one of America’s most renowned book cover designers. While she is best known for her prolific work in the Art Nouveau style, with over 270 known covers and book bindings, she also wrote (and illustrated), among other things, the first comprehensive guide to wildflowers of the American west.
Ms. Strong will share examples from her collection of Armstrong bindings. As a bookbinder and owner of Strong Bindery she has collected Margaret Armstrong covers since the 1980s.
