BIBLIOGRAPHY OF BOOKBINDING MANUALS


This list is NOT to be considered comprehensive. All titles were found in
and taken from the catalog of the Library of Congress. I have intentionally
not included manuals on marbling..., but am also not adverse to including
them. Titles which I consider essential / reliable for the beginner are
indicated in red type. As with most things, a little bit of knowledge can be
a dangerous thing, so beware. The compiler of this bibliography is not
responsible... Many of these titles are carried by vendors such as The
Bookbinder's Warehouse and
Bookmakers.You may also find some of the more recent ones in the
crafts/hobby section of better book stores. The older ones may be=
 out-of-print.
