We had a great time as your committee representing Bookbinders at the Clunes Booktown May5. Official statistics were 15000 attended in the 2 days. We spent our time doing various book making tasks, case binding boxes, book stitching, and gold blocking. We gave away over 100 bookmarks with personal gold blocked names to the people who stopped by for a discussion. See more about Gold Blocking hands on in the Mat 2019 meeting at West Hawthorn Uniting Church.
Debra making boxes, Mary making book block, David holding the Marvels of the Universe, Jim at rear left blocking bookmarks while Helen watches, Tim explaining stitching to 2 visitor on the right.
A full leather copy of; The Perfume of Books, by Erika Mordek, a book on old bindings, so it deserves a full leather binding with a Cambridge Panel, a trade binding pattern from the late 1700's.. But during the blind tooling an overhot tool burns the leather.
Made a book but no label? Now is your chance to plan a label, and come along a make the label with either cloth, paper or some leather. Check out the additions to the post at the bottom of the file
I will again host an open bindery Thursday evenings through May 2019.
