Adam Larsson trained at an Arts&Crafts school in Sweden, a 2 year
program including French-, German-, English- and Scandinavian
techniques, historical techniques,  making of boxes and containers,
paper and book conservation,  book-, paper- and art history, drawing and
painting.

He has been working at Uppsala University library as a book conservator
since 1994. He also teaches workshops and gives lectures in
traditional/historical bookbinding as well as "book arts".

He has participated in some 15 exhibitions, mainly in Sweden but also in
Finland, France, Italy, Estonia and Belgium.

The Workshop:
Millimeter binding is originally a Danish type of binding, half leather,
well adapted by all of Scandinavia. It was developed after the war
because of the lack of leather. Usually it is thin and quite small books
that are bound using this technique, say no more than 15 signatures and
about 22 cm x 15 cm in size.

Participants need to prepare one textblock for the workshop with triple
folio endpapers. Sewing is done on ordinary cords, sawn in.  You need to
think about the swelling when you chose the thread for the sewing.
Complete the textblock including rounding, backing to a 90° shoulder
(thickness of thin millboard), endbands if desired, and lining of the
spine using a good quality paper. Then finish with sanding the linings
to a smooth surface. Adam will take over from there.

He will go through all the special details with the forwarding during
the workshop; sewing, endpapers, headbands e.t.c. and if there's time
the participants can start with a second book during the workshop.

For more information on Millimeter Bindings, see also Barbara
Rosenberg’s article on John Hyloft’s presentation on Millimeter Binding
at the 15th Annual Seminar on The Standards of Excellence in Vol. XXXIV
Number 1 of the Guild of Book Workers Journal.

Materials needed:
- One textblock, completed as described above. Signatures for a second
book, which we will do if there is time.
- Leather for the covering (goat – bring as much leather as you would
use for two half leather bindings)
- Boards to fit your textblock if you have some.  The Academy has .82
thickness and up.
- Paper for the covering (paste-paper or marbled-paper).
- Paring knives and ordinary tools like scalpels, bonefolders etc...
- A paring machine if you have one (Schaerf-fix or Brockman). The
academy has three, but things will move faster, the more we have.
