 Bookbinding Core 2 :: Flat-Back Case Binding

In this second Core Bookbinding class, students will create what most of us refer to as a hardbound book. In bookbinding terms, it is known as a case binding; where a sewn textblock is glued into a separate structure known as a case. Students will learn more about the mechanics of books as they build on skills from Core 1 and expand both their vocabulary and capabilities in and around the bindery.

Competencies Gained:

  • Build on skills from Core 1

  • Knowledge:

    • Mechanism and relationships of the elements of a bound book and case binding

    • Bookbinding materials: threads and tapes
