Single Section Binding - A Free Manual

Vol.4 Eden Workshops Technical Series Workbooks. An Elegant Solution To The problem Of The Single Section Binding.

kjI hope this little manual will be of use to anyone whohas been faced with the problem of how to neatly deal with the problem of single section bindings.

The problems arise because of the fact that with a single section you cannot form shoulders on the book.

All other methods of dealing with a single section result in drag on the hinge area and never function in the way a book with shoulders will. 

I did not intend this manual to be for the complete novice, though the structure is simple enough, rather I hope this book structure will appeal to those who have encountered this problem before and do not know this method of dealing with it. It was taught me by Mr. Anton Henley when I was studying bookbinding at Brunel College in Bristol sometime in 1987 I think. 

 

The line drawings I made below illustrate a few of the processes involved
