Sewn Board Binding Part 2 // Adventures in Bookbinding

3 Просмотры
The sewn board binding was developed by Gary Frost in the early 80s. It connects back to the earliest forms of the codex where the boards were attached to the text block at the sewing. This is different to later forms where the sewing encompasses supports, which are then used to attach the boards, and later still, the cased book.

The DAS Bookbinding Channel is the perfect starting point for learning bookbinding. It covers foundation skills, simple projects, technical methods, materials and more advanced bookbinding projects. The videos are presented in a tutorial or lesson fashion, which I hope are easy to follow. The knowledge presented is based on traditional techniques which can be used to create traditional books or as a foundation to quality journalling or creative artists' books. The best way to find what you are looking for is the DAS Bookbinding YouTube Channel guide.
