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.

Limp Vellum binding – in cloth and card

Had a very interesting series of lessons with my students creating a Limp Vellum Binding. We created a vellum looking cover using cloth and card. I had some white leather, soft and easy to use, for the thonging.

We followed mostly the detailed instructions taken from Jan Lindsay’s coverage of this binding style.

We were pleased with the results. A bit exacting in the punching and trimming pattern but well worth persisting.

Here is one example finished – more students to finish their books.
