Pete Jermann is returning to Johns Hopkins University to repeat his
successful workshop.  The Preservation Department of the Milton S.
Eisenhower Library at JHU and the Potomac Chapter of the Guild of
BookWorkers are co-sponsoring this event.

This is a two day workshop: Thursday, August 13, 9am-4pm;  Friday,
August 14, 9pm-1pm. Enrollment is limited to 6 people. Participants
will learn the theory and practice of adhesive binding for the hand
binder and in-house library repair units. Desk-top publishing,
paperbacks, and the photocopier highlight the need for simple but
sound binding structures for publications on separate sheets.
Discussions and hands-on exercises will include the selection of
adhesives, the dynamics of adhesive binding structures, and
quarter-joint binding. Participants will make several binding models
illustrating structural variations.

Participants will need an apron, personal hand tools (if desired),
Lunch is on your own.

Pete Jermann, preservation officer for the Friedsam Library at St.
Bonaventure University, began researching adhesive binding
techniques ten years ago in order to develop efficient rebinding
structures for use in a small in-house library binding and repair
unit. He has published a study on book structures in "New Library
Scene" (August, 1994).

Workshops will be held in the Conservation Department, 108 Kreiger
