Considered Medieval bling, the girdle book is an historic binding structure featuring a long extension of leather which could be attached to a traveler’s belt. Learn the ins-and-outs of this early binding structure in this 4-day workshop.

The girdle book is a Medieval binding structure featuring a long extension of leather which could be attached to a traveler’s belt. The leather extension terminates in a decorative knot.

In this four-day workshop, students will construct a girdle book on the foundation of a typical Medieval binding: Text block sewn on double raised supports; wooden boards shaped all around, with special attention given to the inside spine edge to match the text block’s shoulder, then laced on and pegged; sewn headbands; covered in vividly-colored leather; strap and pin closure, simple bosses at the corners, parchment page markers.
