I just returned from a trip through Europe. While each city had its own unique architecture and attractions, my husband and I were repeatedly greeted by one prevailing theme – brides. Nearly everywhere we looked, there was another flowing wedding dress. So, to celebrate the season of brides, this week’s Reference Collection highlight is “The Paper Bride: Wedding DIY from Pop-the-Question to Tie-the-Knot and Happily Ever After” by Esther K. Smith (REF.BM.0019).

The title also includes appendices on paste and paste paper, a handwriting guide, templates, and a list of recommended resources.
Whether you’re planning a wedding, helping out with one, or are just curious about the steps involved, this title would be a great place to start.
The Reference Collection is one of three collections at The Center for Book Arts. The other two include the Fine Arts Collection (composed of artists' books and prints) and the Archives (containing Exhibition Catalogs and the Center's ephemera). All three collections can be viewed on-line via the Center's website or in person by appointment. Note that the Reference Library is currently being cataloged, with roughly 85% completed.
