Flexible Staple Binding in Stone Veneer

Monday, 26. June 2017 to Thursday, 29. June 2017

Stone veneer is the result of an interesting developpement in laser cutting. It is a 3 mm thick slice of stone lined with cotton. It can be cut, folded and tooled easily. The structure is a conservation binding structure. The primary sewing holds the single section book together with the white endpaper sheet and the folded color endpaper. The secondary sewing holding the cover is made with "staples" i.e. folded metal wire.

Dos-a-dos Binding: 3 Variations

Monday, 3. July 2017 to Friday, 7. July 2017

We will not only get to know the commonly known classical form of a dos-a-dos binding, but will deliberately turn our attention to newer, more extraordinary solutions. In order to be able to produce all three variations, we will limit ourselves to paper as a material; however, there are no restrictions with regards to forms and colours. The ideal format is approximately DIN A6 – DIN A5. Of course, participants may also use blank, pre-folded sections.

The German paper case binding and its variations

Monday, 28. August 2017 to Friday, 1. September 2017

This course is all about the “Edelpappband” or the German paper case binding with a continuous end sheet fold (also known in North America as the “millimeter” binding) (max. dimension A6-A7). Case bindings with decorated paper covers are treasured among Bibliophiles and are eagerly sought and collected. The instructor will give insight into the rich tradition of this binding style and will show how it can be interpreted in a contemporary context. Demonstrations will include how to use leather to reinforce the head, tail, corners and/or fore edges of the book. In addition, we will be stamping titles and making soft slipcases for our bindings.

Crossed-structure Bindings

Tuesday, 5. September 2017 to Thursday, 7. September 2017

This course invites one to travel into the world of “Crossed Structure Binding”, a technique created by Carmencho Arregui. This technique brought a revolutionary renewal not only in the tradition of bookbinding but also and especially in the conservation area, giving a totally new view concerning the structure of a book and its infinite possibilities of development. The aim of the course is to create some of the 7 variations of this technique and then leave free space for working on one’s own choice of models.

5 Days, 5 Techniques

Monday, 18. September 2017 to Friday, 22. September 2017

Bernhard Sanders demonstrates five binding styles that come from his forays into innovative techniques using plastic, board, paper and saddlery leather. During the workshop we will explore the function and the opening characteristics of binding techniques, their limits, and the synergy of material, format and proportion. We will produce 5 non-adhesive contemporary bindings whose roots are anchored in the classical book, yet are freed from the strictness of the tradition. The “easy book” on the difficult road to open thinking.

Stick Binding

Monday, 25. September 2017 to Friday, 29. September 2017

The stick binding technique offers endless possibilities and non-traditional variations on how to bind a book. With this non-adhesive binding technique, each section is individually sewn onto a rod. The rods can be of any material that has appropriate rigidity, for example: wood, metal, plexiglas, carbon fiber, etc. As covering material for the boards, paper, cloth, leather, and so forth may be used. The structure is ideal for books with one or more sections. The format should be at maximum A5 (148 x 210 mm, 5.8 x 8.3 inches).

Crisscross Binding

Wednesday, 4. October 2017 to Friday, 6. October 2017

The Crisscross Binding technique was developed by Anne Goy. The technique is exceptional with regards to its functionality and its design. The book covers and the text block can easily be opened and the sewing construction works directly or indirectly as an interesting design element. This is a great course for a bookbinder who would like to expand his or her repertoire of binding techniques.
