Now that the winter break has begun I finally have some time to update this blog with all the work I've been up to this fall. The following are what I made in Bookbinding with Julie C. Smith.
The cover isn't paper, its highly starched cloth from what I understand. The pamphlet is stitched with a cloth spine using a 3-hole binding
The boards are covered separately and adhered to the cloth and a paste down is adhered to the inside of the boards to cover the hinge. This particular one was a double pamphlet - considerably more fussy than the single pamphlet
Non-adhesive binding using paste papers made on maps
Blue. Like the ocean.
The next two were in particular to practice splicing two or three separate pieces together.
Not an easy task
Single Needle Links
Slotted Tape bindings
Cover made using Cave paper's Layered Indigo Night
Punch holes and tipped in a lighter piece of paper inside the cover turn-in
Screen printed paper used for the endsheets inside this book, complimented by a forest green
Hardcover single section case binding
Similar to the hardcover pamphlets, these are hinged on cloth spines
The cases are made separately and then hinged onto the cloth spine, the paste downs attached separately
Full cloth binding
Tipped on endsheets
Quarter cloth binding. Cloth spine and screen printed Japanese wave pattern
Sewn on endsheets
The gold is dull and catches the light to reveal a slight shine
