BINDING LOOSE SHEETS - RFS0119
Milan, 8, 15, 22, 29 January 2019
Cristina Balbiano d'Aramengo


A basic course open to everybody, to learn simple techniques to manually bind loose sheets, with some variations in the technique of assembling the pages: from perfect binding, to sawing-in, to running stitch, depending on the thickness and the weight of the book block.
 
After assembling the pages, different types of covers will be realized, both softback ad hardback; we will analyze both the traditional paperback and the Dutch, and then tackle the hollow back for high thicknesses, the casing in with full cover and with "plats rapportés".
 
For the book block, we will work with blank pages, but participants can bring their own printed or written loose sheets to bind them, following the indications given at the beginning of the course.
