Hey you, finicky readers out there! In this workshop, we will take a paperback book and transform it into something more durable and easier to flex and open. We will reuse the old covers and spines, creating a recessed area in the new covers to retain the book's original graphic feel. This is also one of the most common treatments for books in single sheets, so it is a technique you'll be able to use for other types of projects as well. This is a new alternative to the earlier Rebind a Paperback workshop with different skills covered. Both methods are good, especially for ailing paperbacks, and fun to learn.
Please note that we will be rebinding books provided by the instructor, so you can perfect the techniques before improving on your own personal treasures.
Materials to Bring: Optional and available at SFCB for student use during workshop: bone folder, awl, scissors, round glue brush, utility knife, ruler (no cork backing, should have metric as well as Imperial), pencil, dividers.
