This limp binding is based on a 16th century registry of a town’s lumber consumption.

 The decorated cover wrap is a folded construction of handmade papers with leather cord closures. The sections are sewn to the cover at two stations, using a unique sewing pattern that is finished off with a final gathering. The sewing is somewhat free-form.

This is a great introductory course for beginners.

Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding with CBBAG under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza and Rose Newlove. With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures.  Please visit Stuart’s website: www.georgehillco.com
