"First edition, later printing. Part of the Sewn and Pasted, Cloth or Leather series. The sixth book on book design and bookbinding from the book artist K.A. Smith, with the assistance of the binder and teacher F.A. Jordan, covers the making of books from the selection of paper from the standpoint of binding requirements up to and including finishing. Three bindings suitable for nonprofessional (but not unskilled!) binders are emphasized: pamphlet binding in boards, flat back (cased) binding, and tight back (rounded and backed) quarter leather. There are many photographic illustrations and clear drawings of structures, materials, processes and finished products. With notes, a glossary, indexes and a list of paper and leather suppliers."
