Sewn Boards Binding with Sewn-In Wrapper

INSTRUCTOR KAREN HANMER

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP SATURDAY OCTOBER 2, 2021 EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME FROM WHEREVER YOU ARE, VIA ZOOM. (THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE RECORDED, AND VIDEO WILL BE AVAILABLE TO REGISTERED STUDENTS FOR TWO WEEKS AFTER THE WORKSHOP)

This variation on the Sewn Boards Binding is based on a model by Gary Frost in the University of Iowa Library. Before sewing, a long strip of card is hinged around one of the card folios that start and end the book. The stub faces out. After sewing, the card strip is folded around the fore edge of the card folio it is hinged around, across the spine of the book, folded again at the fore edge of the second card folio, and rests inside that folio. A spine lining provides support. The structure provides quick, low-adhesive protection for a text that cannot wait for a more formal binding. The wrapper can unfold as a wide panorama, presenting many book arts possibilities. Expect a fast-paced workshop; some binding experience and familiarity with basic concepts like folding and paper grain direction will be helpful.
