Adventures in Book Binding


Twelve new bookbinders hit the streets (11 shown); identities protected so you won't mob them with requests for journals.

Yesterday 12 intrepid souls joined me at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts to learn my new Roz Method Round-Back Spine. It's a non-traditional take on a sewn-on-tapes structure with a rounded back. Part of the departure from tradition (besides ditching steps like using a sewing frame and other bookbinding equipment) was to create a case using painted boards and tent repair tape. Everyone survived the experience emerging at the end with a beautiful 124 page 6.75 x 5.5 inch journal.
