Mindell Dubansky is head of the Sherman Fairchild Center for Book Conservation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A book conservator, artist, author and book collector, she has built unique collections in order to develop new areas in the field of book history, most
notably a collection of publisher's bindings designed by Alice C. Morse (1863-1961), which resulted in the Grolier Club publication The Proper Decoration of Book Covers: The Life and Work of Alice C. Morse, in 2008. Her collection of book objects will be exhibited for the first time in 2016 at the Grolier Club in New York City.
