This practical book introduces bookbinding techniques with step by step instructions and photographs. Written by a distinguished bookbinder and teacher, Kathy Abbott, it explains how to transform a few sheets of paper and some thread into a book to be proud of. The book also goes though how to work with leather to create classic professional binding:
- single-section bindings: paperback and hard back
- Multi-section bindings: full cloth case, photograph album, quarter leather binding with paper or cloth-covered sides and wrap-around structure.
- Container: phase box, slipcase and portfolio case.
