Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Students, teachers, fine arts professionals, crafts aficionados, art historians, restorers, and bibliophiles: the list of people who will appreciate the beauty of this extraordinary summary of bookbinding techniques is endless. Written by a professor of bookbinding at the Escola d’Arts i Oficis in Barcelona, it provides a precise, systematic, and fully illustrated approach to the craft. Everything is covered in marvelous detail: tools and materials, the parts of the book and the binding, and protective features. Handsome ideas for decorating the cover (stamping, gilding, engraving) abound, as do suggestions for restoration. Eight specific and extremely detailed projects for binding form the heart of the volume, which includes binding in fabric, making a jacket with flaps for graphic works, and constructing a leather-trimmed slipcase.

Fantastic book! Great discriptions. Even very complicated aspects of bookbinding were made easy to understand.
The one aspect which could be improved would be its assumption regarding the reader's workshop. More information about ways of compensating for lack of specific tools would have been helpful.
Still, over all, wonderful!
