Bookbinding Core Certificate Program
The San Francisco Center for the Book celebrates the craft and art of bookbinding. Our Bookbinding Core Certificate Program introduces students to four different binding models, leading them through the history and evolution of bookmaking. It provides students a comprehensive foundation to delve into the practice of binding and qualifies them to rent studio time in our bindery.

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.
Build on skills from Core 1
Mechanism and relationships of the elements of a bound book and case binding
Bookbinding materials: threads and tapes
Spine gluing and lining, endsheets/flyleaves structure and application, endbands
Edge decoration (optional)

Past Student Reviews:
“Nina gave really clear instructions & importantly, the reason for doing a particular step the way we were doing it.”
“I liked that this is a form of binding that most people are very familiar with, as it allowed me to really get a sense for the construction of books and insight into how and why a binding may fail. Nina is also exceptionally patient, sets a great pace, and makes all of the steps digestible. I appreciate her dealing with my endless questions and uncertainties! She always puts positive spin on things, which is so crucial for beginners.”
“Excellent experience all around. Nina is fantastic!”
