The organization Yedidei Hasefer and its newsletter was created in 1980 by book historian Leila Avrin (z”l), paper conservator Nellie Stavisky, and book binder Jane Trigere (my wife), who was then known as Hanna Besserman.
The first exhibit of Yedidei Hasefer was in April 1981 to coincide with the Jerusalem International Book Fair. The exhibit was in honor of Dr. Moshe (Moritz) Spitzer’s 80th birthday and mounted at the Jewish National Library. Many of the books he designed during his long career were displayed, including the ‘Tarshish’ editions.
Here are the Hebrew and English front pages with Spitzer remembrance by Gideon Stern.
