9780712309912: Fine Bookbinding: A Technical Guide

"Fine Bookbinding - A Technical Guide" is an unique bookbinding manual that guides you through each stage of making a book bound in leather: a 'fine' binding. It is designed to be used as you work, and is arranged as a numbered index of the processes involved in making your book: the sequence of operations. Once you have identified the stage you are at in the sequence, you simply turn to that number in the main text where you can read an explanation of that process, followed by instructions with photographs or diagrams of how to do it.

'[Fine Bookbinding] is a seminal work by a master craftswoman, distilled from a lifetimes teaching; it is a meticulous work of the utmost integrity and a lesson in what craftsmanship truly involves. There is detail and forethought in every step taken.' Sylvie Gokulsing, The Scribe 'a landmark publication written with authority' Graham Stevens, Designer Bookbinders Newsletter June 2010 'For those working alone and without the advantage of a tutor to hand this book will be all but indispensable. I am determined to clear my workspace to make room for it.' Alan Isaac, The Society of Bookbinders Newsletter Number 1 / April 2010 'I recommend Fine Bookbinding to anyone who is ready to learn to bind a book in leather.' Journal of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild
