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.

Simple binding but interesting project

A very interesting project has come up my stairs. A series of books made for presentation for funding a proposed television show about the Snowy Mountain Scheme.

The essence of the story revolves around one person – a German doctor. It explores the relationships that develop around this character but also tell of the unique community that worked on this huge project. Many refugees from war torn Europe, former enemies having to work  together, eat and live together. Lots of tension but lots of healing.

A great story and the book is beautifully photographed to give a real feel as to how this television series is envisaged.

Hope the project gets the necessary funding. A great theme and a great project.

The binding will be a simple Oriental side stitch with a rough, canvas cover.

Because I have an art background I really love custom binding work where I need to design and create not only the binding style but the unique cover design.
