Oh, man, I had the best time up at the SF Center for the Book over the weekend! I took Bookbinding 1, which consisted of building two flat-back hardbound books under the guidance of Rhiannon Alpers, who has both her BA and her MA in book arts. How cool is that?
I took a bunch of photos of the process, so here they are for your viewing pleasure!
I had a lot of fun, and am going to take Bookbinding 2 at the end of the month. Rawk!
It’s a lot of fun learning how to do this — not only does this enable me to build my own books, soon I’ll know enough to start repairing books as well!
