About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Bookbinders at Work. Their Roles and Methods. by FOOT, Mirjam..

Description:

octavo, 162pp. The role of the bookbinder in the production of saleable books and the significance of the binding in all its details, both structural and decorative, have often been disregarded or marginalized by bibliographers. The author sets out to reverse the trend by establishing working binders, and their materials and tools as an essential part of the production cycle. She reveals the inadequacy of bibliographical descriptions that lack essential binding information. Numerous illustrations are taken from actual examples of bound books and from manuals on bookbinding practices of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. Bookseller Inventory #
