Bookbinding - A Step-by-Step Guide

By Kathy Abbott

Published by The Crowood Press

We are very pleased to bring you this eagerly awaited manual on bookbinding. We believe that 'Bookbinding - A Step-by-Step Guide' will become one of the definitive instruction manuals to the craft.

The craft of bookbinding has a long history steeped in beauty and tradition. It has developed through the ages and is now enjoying a period of renewed popularity and creativity. Whether you are a beginner or an established bookbinder wishing to refresh your memory, this practical book introduces the techniques with step-by-step instructions and photographs. Written by distinguished bookbinder and teacher, Kathy Abbott, it explains how to transform a few sheets of paper and some thread into a book to be proud of. For the more experienced, Kathy also covers how to work with leather to create classic, professional bindings.

Topics include:

  • Single-section bindings - paperback and hardback
  • Containers; phase box, slipcase and portfolio case

Hardback, 160 pages, 270mm x 221mm, 300 photographs
