Sydney Bookbinding

Welcome to my Bookbinding Blog

The making of books, the teaching of bookbinding and the association with other bookbinders and book artists has become the focus and passion of my life. Bookbinding has many aspects and we debate a lot about the precise definitions of various aspects but, working with our hands within this discipline, challenging our skills and creativity is intriguing, frustrating and exciting.

Dos Rapporte binding

Students were very interested in this new binding structure so, with the assistance of my fellow binder. we set about working it out.
We had scant details to go on although we had a little communication with the developer.  However, seven samples later. we feel we have a successful binding where the look and action is Dos Rapporte.
This example is a guest book where this style  is very suitable as it opens flat like a spring back. Great for guests to write on every area of the pages.
More images later.

A new binding style - Dos Rapporte

I am heading to the Canberra Bookbinders Guild to conduct a weekend workshop on this binding technique.
Hope it goes well.
