Designed as a practical course for beginners and hobbyists and also as a reference for more advanced students, this book covers all the basic techniques of cloth and leather binding, including tools, materials and the workshop. The most common bindings are covered, such as single section, case, flat-back and Buckram library-style. The book also includes notes on simple paper and binding repairs, and a section of projects to try, including binding paperback books and making household objects, such as desk blotters and photograph frames.
