Bookbinding 1:

Pamphlets, Stab-bindings and Concertinas

Bookbinding 2:

Drum-Leaf Binding

Based on a 17th century book structure, this innovative glued binding is an ideal way to turn your artwork into a book format. It requires no sewing so there is no thread to interfere with any image or text that crosses through the fold of the page. Each folded two-page spread can be a print, painting or digital image that is glued to the back of the following page, producing a lightweight and flexible book.
