Bookbinding, and the Care of Books (Illustrated) By Douglas Cockerell
eBook (ePub): $3.99
It is hoped that this book will help bookbinders and librarians to select sound methods of binding books. It is intended to supplement and not to supplant workshop training for bookbinders. No one... More > can become a skilled workman by reading text-books, but to a man who has acquired skill and practical experience, a text-book, giving perhaps different methods from those to which he has been accustomed, may be helpful. My thanks are due to many friends, including the workmen in my workshop, for useful suggestions and other help, and to the Society of Arts for permission to quote from the report of their Special Committee on leather for bookbinding. I should also like to express my indebtedness to my master, Mr. T. J. Cobden-Sanderson, for it was in his workshop that I learned my craft, and anything that may be of value in this book is due to his influence.< Less

This book is disgusting. I am disgusted by this book. Perfect-bound? Really? How much of the page are you going to lose in that canyon? Sweet Jesus I can't stand you. I made a book all about how... More > wonderful handmade books are and then you put it in this hideous — no, I can't even call that monstrosity a book.
