Hobbyists can learn the art of bookbinding from a renowned Victorian master in a classic that offers expert, easy-to-follow advice on every stage of the craft. The author, whose custom bookbinding has been revered since the nineteenth century, offers step-by-step instructions on every stage of the process: from folding the leaves and sewing them into signatures to gluing, gilding edges, covering, and finishing. Over 117 woodcuts and lithographs from the original edition illustrate tools and equipment, as well as examples of exquisite binding inlays. A rare study of a centuries-old art form, "The Art of Bookbinding" preserves a precious legacy for binders, book art enthusiasts, and collectors. Among the most respected references available on the techniques of professional bookbinding, its contents capture the essence of superior book production and invoke a renewed appreciation for lasting, quality-made tomes.
