#5110 Dove Dale Paper Case, April 21, with Karen Hanmer

$ 75.00


Paper Case Series: Dove Dale Paper Case

For centuries paper has served as a quick, elegant, and economical covering material for books. This versatile material can create structures ranging from pocket notebooks to conservation friendly bindings to a case durable enough for a heavily-used manual.

This workshop is part of our Paper Case Series, take one or take the full series.

Edward Marston’s 1884 An Amateur Angler's Days in Dove Dale: Or, How I Spent My Three Weeks' Holiday was issued in a simple folded limp vellum case printed in two colors. This limp paper case is a low-adhesive version of that binding. This case will work best on a small, narrow, lightweight text block.

This workshop is appropriate for intermediate binders, beginners who are ready for a fast-paced workout, and anyone who wants to add more paper cases to their repertoire.

Students in this class will be provided with a descriptive handout and materials list in advance of the class to allow students to bind along with the instructor during the demonstration.

This is an online class. Information about participating by zoom will be sent to all participants in advance. We encourage you to enroll early so you can gather the materials and supplies and work along during the class.
