medieval bookbinding

Much of what has been published on medieval book binding is either hard to
get hold of or deals with decoration and interpretation rather than the
actual binding.  The University of Toronto Press has recently reprinted
Barbara Shailor's "The Medieval Book" which does include a brief overview
of the binding process.  It is not very thorough, but at least this book
is fairly cheap and currently available
