Spring Back Ledger Binding
2003 - Denver, CO
A demonstration of the construction of a traditional, spring back ledger syle binding. This style of binding is ideal for financial ledgers, journals, diaries, and guest books or other books which need to open fully to allow writing near the gutter margins. Details are giving on the endsheets, board attachement, and spring back structures. Richard Baker has been binding books since 1973, when he started taking classes with the late Bill Anthony. He has worked at Johns Hopkins University, the Smithsonian Institution and the American Antiquarian Society. Since 1989, he had his own book and paper conservation studio in St. Louis, where he also teaches students in bookbinding.
