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.

Tuesday – sample covers for Longstitch

I will have small pieces of board and cloth so that we can do a sample of how to cut and create hinges allowing you to have side covers and a spine area – the format for your larger Longstitch book.

So cutting and gluing, yes corners to be neatly done, you also  need to sand the outside edge of your covers – top, bottom and front plus the actual corners.

We will then have card pieces to pierce holes into so that we can understand the stitching process. Some folded bits of paper will allow us to actually stitch in some sections.

I will bring thread, board, cloth and sandpaper for you to use.
