For the fifth episode of our podcast we invited a marbler from Saint Petersburg, Russia. Katy Ebru talks with us about her path to becoming a marbler and shows several marbling patterns right during the recording!
In this chapter, Ben and I discuss the new structures introduced through his project Bookbinding Out of the Box, his upcoming tutorials, and reply several questions from the community.
Time to discuss some of the inspiring bookbinding projects of November. As usual, the projects were chosen for the post are quite diverse, and include many things from fine and design binding to boxmaking. Some of them are quite accessible even for beginners.
A practical guide to bookbinding that includes multiple projects aimed to help to master the basics of the craft. Softcover, 1931. Limp cloth wrappers, 8vo, 48pp.; multiple illustrations and schemes.
I've made this short video to show during bookbinding shows and fairs, as it answers all the major questions in just 30 seconds. However, I was a bit slow to share it. Don't know why. In this post, you'll find this video =)
Digitized Book: The Binding of Books. An Essay in the History of Gold-Tooled Bindings (Herbert P. Horne, 1894)
Herbert Percy Horne was an English poet, architect, typographer and designer, art historian and antiquarian. Among other things, he wrote this book about the history of gold-tooled bindings.
While browsing YouTube, I stumbled across a channel of the Peter Harrington Bookshop. It showcases many beautiful works of book art. Lots of videos were posted there, until some moment last year they, unfortunately, stopped making new content.
