Non-Adhesive Binding: Books Without Paste or Glue, Vol. 1by Keith A. Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Volume I is not only about how to bind a book, the first part of this text is about developing an approach to binding. Sewing a blank book or rebinding an existing one differs from creating a book of text and/or pictures. Here, binding should not be an afterthought but an integral part of the statement.
Volume I is an introduction to hand binding:
PART 3 describes covers, tape supports, interlocking tabs, turns-in and spine-pleats.
PART 4 contains the references, including a Glossary of Terms, Notes, Index of Terms and Reference of Photographic Illustrations.
Volume I has 137 photographic reproductions of bindings by 37 contemporary bookbinders.
