Book Binding for Heavy Weights
Coptic bindings as crafted by the early Christian Egyptians and machine produced bindings
what's the connection? In this course participants will sew a text block Coptic style, similar to machine sewn text blocks. This technique can be helpful to repair a text block or to create your own book. Participants will learn to glue, round, line a spine and how to make a hollow tube. A hollow tube adhered to the spine of text block and cover gives additional support to a heavy text block. Participants will be provided with a used cloth bound book which they will deconstruct as model to practice on. The case will be re-assembled using as much of the original material as feasible. As participants will learn about the structure of the book, they will start to understand how different binding techniques may support or defeat its intended purpose. Participation in other bookmaking classes will be helpful but is not a requirement. Registered participants will receive a materials list.
