The Cross Structure Binding (CSB) is a book structure in which the cover is attached to the text block as it is sewn.
The Safeguarding CSB creates a complete protective wrap of the text block and sewing. The simple design also makes a very attractive cover.
This CSB is an excellent starting point for anyone new to bookbinding.
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
