INTRODUCTION TO BOOKBINDING, LEVEL 2
JULY 8 – 12 | PETER GERATY
Students who have taken previous bookbinding classes will find an opportunity in this course to further develop their skills and to deepen their knowledge of the materials and techniques used in bookbinding. Starting with a review of the simple case binding, students will learn to make a rounded spine, sew endbands, incorporate design options such as embossed boards, and learn efficient methods for taking a book apart or making multiples. For those who are ready, the paring of leather and creating a quarter-leather binding is an option. This course will also focus on providing solutions to individual problems or areas that students specifically want to explore. It is highly recommended that students complete this introductory level prior to participation in the Fundamentals of Fine Leather Binding course.
