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.

Carolingian binding, Medieval books

This was a fun book to construct. Polished wooden boards with the folded sections sewn in around strong hemp cord. No adhesive was used.

I will do another sample using leather covered boards, not so thick, so that the binding style is suitable for a journal book. These wooden boards certainly do not fit into a handbag. Liked that the binding was non adhesive. a very secure construction and opens completely flat – as does the Coptic binding.
