Event Description This simple, but elegant, binding is one of the contributions to the American Arts and Craft Movement made by the Roycrofters, and you can learn to bind your own in this one day class. The simple suede cover, over a basic stitched textblock, is finished with printed or marbled endsheets on thin interior boards, while the yapped suede edges provide a graceful note to the book. We will create two complete bindings in class, and use the second one to explore decorative techniques consistent with the Arts and Crafts period. We will also examine original Roycroft examples of this structure, and explore the designs of the American Arts and Crafts movement. No bookbinding experience necessary.
