Designed as a practical course for beginners and also as reference for more advanced students, this book covers all the basic techniques of cloth and leather binding, including tools, materials, and the workshop. All the most common bindings are covered - single section, case, flat-back and Buckram library-style. There are also notes on simple paper and binding repairs, and a section of projects to try, including binding paperback books and making household objects such as desk blotters and photograph frames.
