Cerealis: Limp binding

July 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Instructor: Stuart Hill
Materials Fee: Materials courtesy of George Hill & Co.
Prerequisite: None

This limp binding is based on a 18th century record of expenditures on wheat.

The textblock is sewn, incorporating leather headbands. The folded cover is made from a lamination of linen and handmade paper. The textblock and headbands are held in place using a series of tackets. The closure is a tied leather thong.

This is a great introductory course for beginners.

Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding with CBBAG under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza and Rose Newlove. With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures. Please visit Stuart’s website: www.georgehillco.com
