Variations on the Sewn Boards and Drum Leaf Bindings
2013 - Washington, D.C.
Sewn Boards binding incorporates stiffened outer signatures sewn along with the text block which then function as a book's cover boards. Drum Leaf binding is composed of single folios, not signatures, where the sewing thread is hidden and the complexities of text imposition are eliminated. Many variations are demonstrated and models, including cutaways, are shown of both successful and less-successful examples. Discussion ranges from principles of working with materials, the importance of models, and co-opting tools from other disciplines to tips for editioning books.
