Traditional Bookbinding

$250 Members, $275 Nonmembers, all materials included

Limit 4 students

Over the course of four 3-hour sessions students will learn how to bind a book using the traditional German 4-piece case. We will cover proper methods of cutting, collating, and folding paper, and will build the book from the ground up. Students will have the choice of a few different endsheet structures, and we will sew our books on linen tapes. There are a variety of fine bookbinding cloths to choose from for covers, and time permitting we will cover the basics of titling with real gold foil.  For more information, please call (843) 723-9912.
