Publisher’s Synopsis

Bookbinding is an age-old craft steeped in beauty and tradition, but it is also an exciting and contemporary art enjoying a renaissance. This practical book introduces the techniques with step-by-step instructions and photographs. Written by a distinguished bookbinder and teacher, it explains how to transform a few pieces of paper and some thread into a book to be proud of. For the more experiences, Kathy Abbott also covers how to work with leather to create classic, professional bindings such as:
  • Single-section bindings: paperback and hardback
  • Multi-section bindings: full cloth case, photograph album, quarter leather binding with paper of cloth-coveredsides, and wrap-around structure.
  • Containers: phase box, slipcase and portfolio case.

1st edition 2010, HB, 158pp, full colour throughout, 22.5 x 27cm
