About this title:
From the Back Cover:
Jane Greenfield's ABC of Bookbinding is a work long overdue. As a major illustrated glossary in the field of bookbinding, it provides a unique outline of the physical book and a concise look at the book's development over the centuries. More than a thousand binding-related words and seven hundred drawings are included in the glossary for every conceivable part of the book. This is the first time such succinct definitions and so many illustrations are coupled with clear outlines of the various periods in the historical development of book structure and style. Nowhere else is there such a unique combination of information available for student or collector who seeks to answer precise questions on bookbinding terminology. ABC of Bookbinding belongs on the reference shelf of every bibliophile, librarian, book conservator, collector, and binder interested in the book arts. (81/4 X 111/4, 204 pages, illustrations)
