The Alcuin Society’s 2017 Reid award winner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Alcuin Society is delighted to announce that David Carruthers & Denise Lapointe, La Papeterie Saint-Armand, makers of fine archival paper, are the recipients of the ninth Robert R. Reid Award and Medal for lifetime achievement in the book arts in Canada, for the year 2017.

La Papeterie Saint-Armand has been producing papers for both book and fine artists since the company’s inception in 1979. The extremely demanding process has enabled them to create a product that is an integral part of many fine books produced in both Canada and abroad for the last four decades. Their passion for their work is the basis for their success. As Carruthers put it, “We are artists in paper.”

You may read more about them in Marlene Chan’s “Paper in the Making”, Amphora 173 (Summer 2016). A few copies are still available for purchase.

Details of the date and location of the presentation will be announced in the coming months.
