IN PERSON: Bookbinding 2 with Don Taylor

This six-day workshop introduces intermediate techniques necessary for traditional binding structures, such as rounding and backing, sewn end bands, recessed cord sewing, the hollow tube, simple edge treatments and visible/invisible hinge hooked endpapers. Two models will be made one with a German case and the other with a Bradel board attachment.

This is one of the core courses required for the CBBAG Certificate and is a prerequisite for Bookbinding 3 and is a good opportunity to build on BB1 skills and progress in practice of bookbinding by hand.

Don Taylor is a bookbinder and restorer who works and teaches in Toronto. He has taught for CBBAG since 1984. He was trained in bookbinding and design at Sheridan College and the Three Schools of Art and has studied with Betsy Palmer Eldridge. His work is exhibited widely and is represented in public and private collections across Canada and he can be found at
