Bookbinding Tutorial From Angela Sutton On CD

 angela sutton

Bookbinding in Pictures, by  Angela Sutton, offers a comprehensive introduction to the absorbing craft of bookbinding.

It provides all necessary instruction for beginners, describing the tools, equipment and materials needed and how to work with them.

It is intended for people working on their own who will be able to achieve the goal of rebinding a favourite book and thereby gain confidence to progress to further studies.


The photographs are carefully matched to the written instructions.

 Text and photographs appear side by side on screen and each page can be printed separately or as part of a unit.

This ancient and wonderful craft is in danger of disappearing through lack of local classes and the opportunity to learn.

Angela Sutton has put together a set of basic instructions for complete beginners, with the emphasis on how to use the tools, equipment and materials.

"I have enjoyed the case binding section
which is very thorough, comprehensive
and the photos are really good ...
I was intrigued by your triple method
of handling single sheets
which is quick and easy to do."
June McNicol, Australia
 

"A pretty comprehensive working guide ...
with the great attraction of numerous
clear photographs of all the stages
of work discussed"

Barry McKay, Society of Bookbinders

"In clarity of instruction and format,
this is the best beginners’ book
to come out in years."

Sandy Cohen, US Guild of Bookworkers
