A book to delight amateur craftsmen, librarians undertaking their own binding and repairing, and everyone who is interested in bookbinding as a hobby. Only a minimum of text is used in this excellent pictorial demonstration of the latest and most practical methods of binding magazine collections, books, and manuscripts. Almost 200 carefully laid out photographs and drawings enable the reader to learn, almost at a glance, the procedures for each of the six different styles of binding. The processes described , step-by-step, are: rounding, backing, covering, oversewing, flexible sewing, finishing, titling, preserving leather bindings, and repairing damaged books.
