Great book, but not for beginners!
on October 20, 2009
I got this book hoping it will give me some simple, yet thorough advice or guidance to book binding, as I'm into handmade paper making and would like to create different sorts of journals, notebooks, book covers, etc.
The book has amazing historical information and detailed explanation on various techniques, but my level is too low and I don't understand much of the technicalities. Also, the illustrations are scarce and that's not a good thing for a beginner.
Will look for another book on the subject.
