CD - 'Bookbinding in Pictures' by Angela Sutton
Angela Sutton's Bookbinding in Pictures offers a comprehensive introduction to the absorbing craft of bookbinding. It provides all necessary instruction for beginners, describing the tools, equipment and materials needed and how to work with them. It is intended for people working on their own who will be able to achieve the goal of rebinding a favourite book and thereby gain confidence to progress to further studies. The techniques and methods of bookbinding are ancient and need time to acquire. Courses with knowledgeable tutors are now ever fewer in number, and yet many of the standard manuals assume that a tutor is readily available to help. I have taught bookbinding in Malvern for many years now and I have a good idea of the processes that beginners need to know, such as how to sit while sewing and how to hold a sheet of pasted paper. I have produced an instruction manual, Bookbinding in Pictures, which is aimed at giving the complete beginner grounding in the techniques of bookbinding. The manual enables the student working alone to produce bound books in both cloth and leather. These are the foundations on which further knowledge of the craft can be developed. The book is available in CD format. It can be read on your computer. Individual pages can be printed out on your own home printer if you find this more convenient. Step by step instructions are fully illustrated with diagrams. Photographs down the right hand side of the page are numbered and keyed into the corresponding text.
