My bookbinding class at the Museum of Printing History is fantastic! Today (day 1) we folded, punched, sewed, glued, added a ribbon, made and glued endtapes and spine filler. Tomorrow is covers and book #2.
Here is Myssie admiring the results of a nice trim from the guillotine.
I have to admit, we did all get a bit giddy at that point. After seeing how nice Geri's text block looked after trimming, I had to send mine through:
Not a great picture, but believe me, that is one smooooooth foredge!!
And here is my little book-to-be after adding the ribbon and endtapes. (Dude. We made endtapes. Most books you see don't even have endtapes, and we made ours. Out of pared leather. I may faint.)
