Unfortunately long time member and Yapp editor Mervyn Bond has passed away recently. Merv had been the editor and major contributor to the Yapp for over 10 years, and passed on his role last year as a result of his illness. Unfortunately this also prevented him from doing much in the bookbinding arena in the last few years.
Merv was also a valuable committee member who always thought things through and quietly brough items to the attention that they needed. He will be sadly missed. A short piece will be printed in the next Yapp magazine in tribute.
