Re: Beginner's Binding References

Two more books for beginning bookbinders:

by Pauline Johnson, "Creative Bookbinding" (Dover Publications, NY)
  still available. Covers a short history, types of, tools, nomenclature,
simple  and more complex projects and paper decoration.

Arthur W. Johnson's, "The Craft of Bookbinding"  (Thames & Hudson)
  Mr. Johnson says, "The aim of this book is to explain, by means of theory,
general instruction and progressive exercises, the principals by which books
are constructed." Part 2 of the book has a series of projects to give the
beginner the hand skills necessary to begin to learn the profession.
