This video made me curious: how do you set a book when sewing an endband? Here the book is set with the spine facing the bookbinder. I was told to put it the other way around. Please join the conversation!
Following on from our popular Headband Gallery post we’ve had many requests for a couple of video tutorials on how to create and sew headbands (also known as endbands). We’ve crawled the darkest corners of the internet and have a found a couple of video ‘gems’. Note that videos shown above and below are works of other bookbinders and not the work of iBookBinding (these will come later…)
We would love to know what you think of the videos, please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
** Note that the first few videos have no sound, whilst the rest of the tutorials do. I would recommend watching them all as they each demonstrate different techniques and offer helpful tips and advice throughout ***
