Introduction to Bookbinding and Custom Cases: A Project Approach for Learning Traditional Methods Hardback
The high quality of traditional bookbinding is renowned, and while apprenticeships are difficult to come by today, this step-by-step guide by expert hand-binders is the next best thing.
Teaching you valuable beginning- and intermediate-level skills, using their trademark hands-on approach, the Hollanders explain the basics of the craft, then guide you through five projects.
Detailed instructions and photos help you to success.
You'll master the pamphlet book style, the flat-back book, the round-back book, and the construction of slipcases and clamshell boxes for decorative book protection.
Along with formulas to help you navigate making your own custom-size books, an extensive glossary of bookbinding terms and a list of resources offer ongoing support.
A gallery of the authors' handmade books and boxes provides inspiration.
