Re: [BKARTS] Emily Martin workshop



This sounds so interesting, but I can't possibly get ot the workshop.  Is
there a description and directions for this binding form anywhere I can find
it?  Others might be interested too.

Subject: 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.
Class Fee 125.00  Materials Fee 25.00
