Foyles Notes

This is a beautiful book and a practical guide to the art and craft of making and binding books. I really like how the book is laid out, the tools of the trade and its various techniques are clearly shown, and the projects build in complexity. The photography is great throughout, and although it never pretends that making a book is a simple matter, it does make it entirely possible to try it for yourself. 

Sarah, Web Store Manager

Synopsis

This is a modern, stylish and practical guide to the traditional craft of bookbinding, written by the founders of the London Centre for Book Arts, a destination workshop space that attracts visitors from all over the world.



Accessible enough for complete beginners, while full of inspiration for those with more experience, this is the ultimate guide to making beautiful books by hand. Starting with an introduction to the bindery and a useful inventory of necessary tools and equipment, you'll also learn about different paper types, and special finishes such as cloth coverings, headbands and ribbon markers.



You'll then find clear step-by-step instructions for six different hand-made book types, from simple pamphlets and concertinas to more elaborate multi-section bindings. Each project includes ideas for variations, resulting in over 20 different possible outcomes. There are also details about more advanced techniques and specialist bindings, as well as handy layout and design advice.



A combination of practical and inspirational photography will guide readers clearly through each stage of the process, while showcasing the unique results that can be achieved and offering an exclusive peek into the workings of the authors' studio.

What a beautiful book. Well laid out, beautifully illustrated and with clear and concise instructions. I have made books before and this is the ideal refresher but it is equally suitable for total beginners.
