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.

Friday – marking and covering boards

For your marking come in, find a space, perhaps around the room, and set out your book with your name and student number clearly on a piece of paper.

I will go around the books, testing if they function well and photographing them. This allows me to take my time considering your marks for this project. Marks are submitted to Michael and go through the normal channels of UNSW before getting to you.

Hopefully I have that all done in the first part of  the class time – then, at about 11.00 we can go through the covering of board for the making of covers for our Concertina. For this you need your ‘gluing station’ as shown.  Have your usual tools plus scissors (best for cutting the corners).  You will need sandpaper but I will bring some for tomorrow – get your own for own work (grit of around 180).

Bring your gluing stuff in a plastic bag as you will take it home wet.

Any questions contact me.
