History of bookbinding techniques IV
Part IV (out of VI): Limp Bindings
centro del bel libro ascona
27-31 August, 2007

Teacher: Barbara Hassel

Limp bindings over a long period of time have not obtained the
adequate attention of researchers in bookbinding. This was probably
due to the lack of gilding and decoration. If at all, limp bindings
were reported as interim bindings. There exists, however, a huge
variety of flexible bindings with very interesting features. The
course is composed of lectures with double slide projection based on
the research of Prof. Janos A. Szirmai and hands-on practical work.
Each participant will do five to six limp vellum bindings with
different types of sewing, such as tacketing, long stitch and kettle
stitch and with various types of flaps and closures.
