(CA) Historic Book Sewing Sampler at San Francisco Center for the Book

From Coptic and Greek to Carolingian and Romanesque, learn to sew over a dozen historic binding styles on a single book in this one-day workshop with visiting instructor Anne Covell.

In this course, students will learn to sew over a dozen historic binding styles on a single book. We’ll begin with unsupported sewings (Coptic and Greek) and progress to cord, alum taw, and split leather (Carolingian and Romanesque). In this portion, we’ll experiment with both raised and recessed supports, as well as packing and sewing variants. We’ll also cover later styles such as sewing over tapes and Ramieband and discuss in depth the history of binding and the timeline of developments that gave rise to each sewing style.
