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.

Single page case binding

Singe page case binding

A very lucky young man is about to receive this book for his 21st birthday. A gift from a sister.

The case binding is in navy bookcloth with a red border around the title on the front cover. A beautiful and sensitive collection of photographs, writings, coloured papers and collections of memories.

The text was all single sheet A5 pages including card pieces and fine Oriental papers as well as archival text paper. I made the spine secure with sunken cords as well as the adhesive. Shoulders were created and the case made. There was quite a lot of hand work getting the titling done and the red border. However we both were pleased with the final book.

Evidently the recipient loves books so his sister thought this would be an  apporpriate gift. I wait to hear how it was recieved. I  am sure it will be treasured for all his life.
