#5051, Two Quick Notebooks with Karen Hanmer - November 3
The Double Pamphlet with Tipped Wrapper is a satisfying solution for a two-signature text block. The signatures are sewn back-to back with a single pamphlet stitch. A simple wrapper of text-weight paper is tipped to the text block at the spine and at the fore edges. The German Stiffened Paper Binding features a rigid cover. Thick card or thin boards are glued directly to the outer leaves. The book is covered in a single piece of paper that is fully-adhered to the spine and boards. Your two finished books plus detailed instructions will be a valuable reference for future work.
Saturday, November 3 from 9 am to 4 pm. There will also be a $30 materials fee.
After registration, you'll receive a list of materials to bring with you.
