Publications on photo albums and bookbinding

From: Richard Horton <sedgehope>
Date: Sunday, July 4, 1999
I now have two additional books of use to conservators, preservation
librarians and small shop binders:

    A Small Book of Practical Sewings by Richard Horton is a bench
    guide to several major book sewings from 1200 to the present.
    The book covers link stitches, sewings over tapes, and sewings
    on sunken or raised, single or double, supports of many
    materials, including the herringbone stitch and packed stitches.
    A class of talented amateurs completed all the sewings in the
    book without my assistance.

    Historical Photo Albums and Their Structures by Richard Horton,
    was presented at the AIC joint BPG/PMG session in St. Louis in
    June of 1999. Based on a structure and mounting survey of over
    300 albums at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center in
    Austin, Texas, this book establishes major historical structural
    categories for albums, and links them to evolving photographic
    processes and their marketing.  The drawings help curators
    understand album structures and are sufficiently detailed to
    allow designers to make new albums using old strategies.

Making Albums for Photos and Paper Collectibles by Richard Horton
with illustrations by Gary Frost, is still available.  It gives
instructions for making 8 kinds of album leaves, safe for the
materials mounted, and suitable for display, along with production
strategies for lab, bindery or small shop.
