Edelpappband binding



Edelpappband binding with Dieter Räder

Tuesday 29 October – Thursday 31 October (3 days)

Course Cost: $375

The Edelpappband —a “nobler” version of the German “Pappband” – is a traditional German structure suitable for smaller, thinner books. Inspired by the better-known Bradel binding, it is different in that cloth, leather, or vellum trim is added at the head, tail, for-edges and corners for greater durability and elegance. The style is an ideal introduction to working with leather as only small amounts are needed and scraps can easily be used. It is also a good exercise in working very precisely. Dieter will demonstrate the construction of the classic Edelpappband, from the construction of the case to the finer details of covering the corner tips and the head and tail. With its handsome proportions, small squares and thin boards, it makes for an extremely elegant and precise binding.
