Catalogue for an exhibition at the Guilford College Art Gallery in Greensboro, NC 2018-19, covering 46 years of fine bindings by Lallier. Known for her creative and thoughtful approaches to the subjects and use of unusual materials such as beautifully inlaid leathers, eggshells, pewter, colorful wires, agates, lizard and snake skin, and innovative techniques including cutouts, reveals, pop-ups, and moveable parts. Her binding of My Antonia by Willa Cather won a Best Binding award at the Chicago Public Library in 2006. Her 2016 binding of Pantagruel was awarded a Silver Prize at the International Competition of Designer Bookbinders.

Lallier supplies entertaining descriptions of the bindings from the maker's perspective, telling brief stories of projects and processes. Each binding is illustrated with expert color photographs, often from several angles and in various states of openness and closure. The variety of design, material, and technique make for a surprise on every page and an extraordinary collective impression.

The exhibition draws from private lenders and institutional collections. With appreciations by Theresa Hammond, Ara Serjoie, Peter Geraty, and Karen Hanmer, and an essay by Lallier herself.

Monique Lallier has served as director of the American Academy of Bookbinding and president of the Association des Relieurs du Quebec. In 2010 the Guild of Book Workers (New York) presented her with the Laura Young award for service as Chair of the Standards of Excellence annual conference from 1988 to 2000. She is married to the British binder and conservator Don Etherington.
