Online publishing, print-on-demand services, plus a wide variety of desktop printers and digital copiers offer more opportunity than ever to produce one-off and small edition bookworks. This two day workshop will introduce participants to the tools and techniques of basic bookbinding geared towards finishing projects printed by digital means. Formatting, imposition and single-sheet printing will be discussed in the context of printing your own work. Pamphlet and coptic sewings will be introduced as strategies for binding books from scratch. Two case bindings will be learned for rebinding saddle-stitched and “perfect bound” print-on-demand books. Basic techniques for working with cloth and decorative papers will enhance possibilities for creating elegant and sturdy presentation bindings.
