Guy Begbie: The Secret Belgian Binding With Hard Back Cover Boards
Friday 17th April 2020
Duration of class 10am - 4pm
Price $220 / $180 members
Participants will have the opportunity to make a hardback book that has an elegant and distinctive thread pattern of sewing.
This is used to lace the front and back covers to the cover spine piece. The cover is made up of three separate components. The sewing is visible on the outside of the book. Measures are taken in the binding construction, to hide the interior thread on the inside of the covers.
The book block/pages are made up of signature folios that are attached in the sewing process to the inside spine of the cover. This binding is robust and durable and allows the book to lie flat when open.
Guy Begbie has 20+ years experience lecturing at the University of the West of England: Bristol, UK for Undergraduate/Postgraduate & Continuing Professional Development Courses in Book Arts, Graphic Design, Printmaking, Drawing & Contemporary Applied & Fine Arts
