Before she died, Dorothy Burnett, the first independent craft binder to set up shop in Vancouver, passed along examples of her book bindings to Anne Yandle at UBC Special Collection. And just before Anne Yandle died late last year, the Alcuin Society was able to show Yandle an advance version of their 80-page book, Dorothy Burnett Bookbinder, designed and printed by Robert R. Reid, with text by Norman Amos. Anyone interested in the history of limited edition publishing in B.C. can contact Jim Rainer at for more details on the limited edition project undertaken in fond memory of Anne Yandle.
