Stub-bindings provide a book with a flexible and less intrusive binding, whether housed in temporary bindings or more sturdy fine bindings. The integrity of the pages are preserved by sewing onto folded paper stubs, which, in-turn take the pressure and distortion of the many forwarding techniques used in bookbinding structures, away from the text-block. They can be adapted for use in a variety of bindings from Japanese structures to french fine binding, and are particularly useful when dealing with precious material, or thick and heavy paper that doesn't lend it self well to backing, or books that may have signatures of different sizes, and as such are used in a variety of conservation bindings. If at any point the binding is compromised or unwelcome, the sewing can be cut and the text can move on to another form.
In Five days over the course of a month, students will complete a fine-binding using a modified bradel structure , and are encouraged to bring any suitable materials and artwork they would wish to use.Find out more »
