Synopsis

Bookbinding is currently enjoying a revival, with designers and creatives discovering the artistic opportunities afforded by this artisan craft. Tapping into the growing popularity of all things 'handmade', I Love Handmade Books is an inspirational celebration of book-making, offering an engaging insight into the range of artisan processes - both traditional and contemporary - involved in creating books by hand. Bursting at the seams with a variety of wonderfully eclectic examples, the book explores the intriguing creative possibilities of book-making as an art form, featuring a wide range of bindings, materials, and embellishments. Featured techniques include everything from Coptic binding to concertina binding, as well as experimental page treatments and decorative finishing techniques such as embossing and gilding. Galleries of stunning contemporary examples showcase the beautiful results that can be achieved with each technique, profiles throughout the book offer an insight into the working practices of each book-maker.

I Love Handmade Books also includes a highly practical and comprehensive chapter that demonstrates how to master different binding techniques, using illustrated step-by-step tutorials and clear, straightforward instructions to clarify even the most seemingly complex methods.
