Book Binding Workshop



These are the fruits of the book binding workshop we had about a week ago. This is an example of 'Perfect Binding' and essentially consists of you layering PVA glue on a spine for multiple layers... putting some cloth on that which includes tabs...allowing you to attach this to the cardboard covers...



The artwork came from some scans from the Ward-O-Matic blog where he found a nice vintage housing magazine from the mid-50s. Really going through a phase of vintage artwork at the moment I find it's simplicities really appealing.

I'll be uploading a lot more stuff about this current project later in the week. It's taking up a lot of time but it's really paying off I think ^_^

  1. I love your book, Archie! These photos don't really do the warm feel of the cover graphics justice.
    Dare I say it, but, so far book binding has been the most fun I've had on this course.
