Diehl, Edith ( 1876-1953 )
One of the foremost American women bookbinders.
Diehl studied the craft in France, Belgium, and
England—in the last named country under T. J.
Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves bindery—and
also with Sangorski and Sutcliffe's bindery. She
opened her own shop in 1906, in New York City, and
achieved her principal fame through her teaching.
Diehl was at one time associated with the bindery
of William E. Rudge. She is also the author of
Bookbinding; its background and technique (1946).
