[BKARTS] Emily Martin workshop

Sunday, September 11 is the annual Kerrytown Bookfest in Ann Arbor. The Mid West Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers and Hollanders in Ann Arbor are sponsoring a one day work shop presented by Emily Martin on Saturday September 10.
Secret Belgian Binding:  10:00 - 5:00
A one-day workshop assembling a model of this book. This historical binding was rediscovered by Hedi Kyle and has been attributed to the Belgians. Its origins are still obscure. This hard cover book can be made with paste paper or other decorated papers or book cloth. The two covers and the spine piece are constructed of binder’s board covered with paper or cloth; each piece is separate until sewn onto the text block. The text block is sewn separately. The covers are sewn onto the text block using a pattern of stitches, which traps the spine in place with a set of loops back and forth across the spine between the front and back covers. This binding yields an attractive and very sturdy book with a decorative pattern of colored waxed linen threads on the spine.
