Pure Bookbinding with Instructor John Cutrone August 24

  • 17500

Saturday August 24, 2024, from 10 AM to 1 PM; $125 tuition includes all materials, including a letterpress printed limited edition book, in sheets

This introductory book arts workshop will provide you with some solid bookbinding know-how as you learn the techniques behind a series of non-adhesive binding structures. Beginning with the basic yet incredibly useful Single Signature Pamphlet Stitch, we will progress to a Double-Signature Pamphlet, then on to a decorative stitch binding, followed by one or two variations of Japanese stab bindings (as time allows). One of the books you’ll bind and take home is a limited edition: a story called Putting Up Mangoes, letterpress printed from handset metal types by the instructor with a linoleum cut by Seth Thompson. The common element? These are all books that require simple materials: paper and thread and nothing more. It is bookbinding in its purest form. All levels; no prior experience in bookbinding is necessary.

Instructor John Cutrone is a writer and co-proprietor of Convivio Bookworks. He is the author of the Convivio Book of Days, a literary lifestyle blog encouraging us to live the ceremony of each day, and the Director of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University Libraries. He is a graduate of the MFA in the Book Arts Program at the University of Alabama.
