Library of Congress Subject Headings: Bookbinding [sh85015705]
An illustrated handbook on simple and inexpensive bookbinding techniques for leather books. Intended for advanced bookbinders. From the introduction: "I have devised two efficient, simple methods of binding in which leather thongs are laced through boards... These bindings will not require a great deal of time to execute and the final product is not only extraordinarily strong, it is quite lovely and rhythmical, as well." Contains a preface, introduction and colophon.
