The Meeting Guard: Its Use Historically and Its Use in Fine Binding, Conservation and Artist Books with Bill Minter The binding of certain books can be a challenge: in some cases, the text paper might be too thick or stiff for the book to function properly; in diaries and record books, the writer wants the pages to lay perfectly flat; and in scrapbooks or albums, mounted materials might hinder the opening. These and other challenges can be addressed with a “meeting guard” binding structure. In this presentation, Bill looks at historical bindings that use the meeting guards and explores its place in artist books and conservation binding. His demonstration includes making meeting guards and sewing them for use on a number of books. The emphasis is to produce a fully functional book that meets our standards and provides the reader with a book that is user-friendly. Minter also provided his ‘hand-out,’ a thorough description of the process, as well as an extensive bibliography, available at: https://guildofbookworkers.org/content/standards- history-and- handouts
