Introduction to Bookbinding and Custom Cases - A Project Approach for Learning Traditional Methods

Author(s): Tom Hollander; Cindy Hollander


The high quality of traditional bookbinding is renowned, and while apprenticeships are difficult to come by today, this step-by-step guide by expert hand-binders is the next best thing. Teaching you valuable beginning and intermediate level skills, using their trademark hands-on approach, the Hollanders explain the basics of the craft, then guide you through five projects. Detailed instructions and photos help you to success. You'll master the pamphlet book style, the flat-back book, the round-back book, and the construction of slipcases and clamshell boxes for decorative book protection. Along with formulas to help you navigate making your own custom-size books, an extensive glossary of bookbinding terms and a list of resources offer ongoing support. A gallery of the authors' handmade books and boxes provides inspiration. AUTHORS: Tom Hollander and Cindy Hollander are the owners of Hollander's School of Book & Paper Arts in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They have taught book arts and supplied high-quality bookbinding supplies for more than twenty-five years.
