A handsome, functional book is built on a solid foundation of traditional forwarding skills. In this two-day workshop, participants learn or reinforce these skills by going through all the steps of crafting a traditional binding prior to covering. Participants fold, mark up, and punch signatures; select and attach endsheets; sew on a simple, homemade sewing frame; glue up and round the spine; lightly back the text block; sew endbands; line the spine; and anchor the text block into a folded, paper case. Instruction covers choosing appropriate materials for support and unencumbered opening. All skill levels are welcome.
