This bookbinding tutorial by Douglas W. Jones isn’t pretty, but it does have some good info and diagrams about collating, punching holes, sewing, trimming pages, etc.
Thanks for the great link. You’re right, it certainly isn’t pretty, but it is very informative for those just starting out.
I have recently become a regular lurker to your blog. I really enjoy it. And, while I totally respect your right to a blogging holiday this week, I will go on record as saying that your posts will be missed. Nevertheless, enjoy yourself. Keep up the great work.
Thanks very much for your comment, Folly! It’s great to know that the work I do at fade theory is appreciated. I have wondered at times if I’m mostly just keeping track of stuff that interests me (which would be okay), or if I’m actually reaching people with common interests (which is best).
I’m glad you posted at Folly’s Feast about the Dr. Seuss cartoons. He has a New Year’s cartoon that will be up at fade theory to welcome 2007. :)
Perfect, I need this – thank you for posting it. I wish I had a picture of me trying to do book binding – what a mess.
I have added 11 out of print bookbinding books to my website that explain traditional bookbinding a little better. http://www.aboutbookbinding.com
