Late Gothic Binding on Wooden Boards
Sunday, Mar 5
Friday, Mar 10, 2017
Learn basic metalsmithing and woodworking techniques, as well as the functional mechanics of book clasps, as you recreate this historic binding of the 16th century. Sew a text block on double cords using the herringbone stitch; sew silk endbands; shape, sand, and attach wooden boards; make and attach brass clasps; and cover the spine with leather. We'll examine an original binding of the mid-16th century and discuss this style as it developed in different European countries. Some bookbinding experience is helpful, but not required.
