From Cover: “Here is a book that gives the elements of bookbinding so clearly that even a beginner will encounter no difficulty in doing the work at home. Everyday tools and easily available material are all that are necessary. The author starts with the simplest kind of binding and then describes progressively more elaborate types. The many illustrations show each step clearly.” The book is broken down into projects including the grain of paper, simple binding, signature binding, the fold binder, semi-permanent covers, check binding, pamphlet binding, full binding, half binding, three-quarter binding, and scrapbook or album binding.
