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.

Monday 15th Concertina and Longstitch

You will work on your Concertina so make sure you have all the materials and tools you require.

Have your samples with you as we will use one of your cover samples to attach to one of your concertina samples – the final requirement is to be able to attach the covers securely and neatly.

It is important that your concertina and covers sit flat on the desk. The concertina can have an irregular top area but it needs to be fully supported at the base.

I will cover some of the requirements for your final project but not spend work time on it. You need to be working on the content pages and to have them well on the way in the next couple of days. Our class time will be devoted mostly to the construction and covering of the covers plus the stitching patterns – content pages you can work on in your own time and any extra time we can give to them during class.

Covers and stitching procedure is quite demanding.
