Founded in 1993, The American Academy of Bookbinding with campuses

March 16-21, 2007
Restoration of Cloth and Leather Bindings
Instructor: Don Etherington
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan

    This course covers restoration and repair of cloth and leather
    bindings using the combination of Japanese paper and linen for
    re-backing and corner repair with leather as an alternative.
    Students should bring 4 books (two cloth and two leather) in
    need of treatment and/or repair to work on during class. No
    prerequisite is required for this class.

April 21, 2007 - May 2, 2007
Book Conservation: Finishing
Instructor: Don Etherington
Location: Telluride, Colorado

    Students will be introduced to blind and gold tooling on leather
    covered practice panels. Using handle letters we will practice
    layouts for spine lettering, also the use of rolls and line
    pallets. The use of real gold foil will also be practiced. The
    second week students that have completed bindings will now tool
    these books in gold leaf with some blind tooling together with
    some simple decoration on the front and back boards. Leather
    label preparation and final polishing will be executed. The use
    of the stamping machine with type will also be practiced,
    alongside the use of the type holder.
