Discover the fascinating craft of bookbinding. Beginners learn every stage of making a book, from folding the paper into sections, to gluing and case-making. Progress to a project such as a more complex binding, repair a personal book or make a box. You may choose to decorate and letter a book cover too. More experienced binders will have the opportunity to renovate their own cloth and leather-bound books.
