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.

Leather dying experiments

Over a couple of weeks my students experimented with some interesting leather dying techniques. Some I have been experimenting with for some time.

Results are always unexpected and often very interesting effects.

We all made small soft covered journals working on leather pieces the correct size and trying to reproduce one of the effects created during our experiments. Re-dying and reworking was possible and these notebooks were quite attractive and pleasant to handle.

Some of the processes were quite involved and one had to be patient but, over 3 sessions our notebooks were virtually made.

These booklets/journals would make interesting and unique gifts.
