(NY) Master Class: Articulated Leather Staple Binding

This class will introduce one of the staple binding techniques developed by Sün Evrard, focusing on a multi-section, soft-cover articulated binding in leather.

Staple binding is similar to a case structure, the textblock is prepared separately from the leather cover with primary sewing. The case is prepared with a leather exterior and articulating leather doublures inside (without boards). The two are joined in an innovative and conservation-friendly secondary sewing, with hand-made staples. The result is a soft-cover binding that is easily reversible and in no way alters or affects the textblock. The conservation based technique is a fun, contemporary take on a centuries old method of secondary sewing (hand-made staples instead of thread or leather thongs).

Coleen will emphasize technique in building the structure: elements that reinforce the strength of the binding include the articulating doublure areas, wooden dowels creating a yap at the foredges, and leather endbands.

Students will learn to manipulate suede to create a gorgeous leather cover. This technique may also be used in other leather crafts.

* basic binding experience preferred, students should take care in measurements. structure is conservation based and totally reversible. the decoration techniques on suede splits can be used for other leather crafts.
