Printouts from  the internet, collapsed paperbacks and complete sets of pages can be converted into functioning books in a surprisingly short time.

The methods to be taught will use simple equipment to demonstrate

    •    Lumbeck method: this is a little more complex but can be used to make hard cover books.

Our bindery is home to a wonderful range of finishing equipment. You have probably seen the blocking presses but we also have a collection of antique hand tools for you to try out in a relaxed atmosphere.

Handle Letters                 
The class will be divided into two groups and John will show how to use the blocking presses and handled tools. Adrienne will show how to colour and decorate edges, and demonstrate fore edge painting which you will then be able to try out on paperbacks trimmed in the guillotine. At lunchtime the groups will rotate.

There will also be demonstrations of simple book cloth onlays and using a soldering iron as a free hand gildng tool.
Items to Bring: Lunch, 2 paperbacks, knife, ruler, pencil, apron etc

John is available on his rostered Sundays to help with further use of the blocking press.
