Vellum Binding
2001 - Alexandria, VA
In this presentation, participants learn about covering a book in vellum using a technique based on the German Bradel binding, of constructing a case which reduces the pull created by the expansion and contraction of vellum. Variants include laced vellum sewing slips, full and quarter vellum, making corners and molding headcaps. Peter Verheyen studied book conservation in Germany and book restoration at Ascona Switzerland. He was a Mellon intern at the Folger, worked with Heinke Pensky-Adam, with Bill Minter and at Yale. He is currently rare book conservator at Cornell University.
