Bookbinding, and the Care of Books: A Handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders and Librarians Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Douglas Cockerell was perhaps the premier bookbinder of the early twentieth century. Many of his pioneering techniques are still used today by hand bookbinders and curators of fine books. In this, his classic exposition of the bookbinder's art, he details the steps used in the hand-binding of books, various decorative techniques, and provides useful, practical information on the proper care of books. This charmingly written and supremely practical book gives a unique look at an increasingly rare art form by one of its greatest practitioners. (4 3/4 X 7 1/4, 336 pages, b&w photos, illustrations, charts)

Synopsis:

All hand bookbinders and curators of fine books will treasure this classic exposition of the art.
