In this course you will expand on the skills learned in the Beginner Course to make a rounded and backed, case bound book.
This is a traditional hard-cover book.

After folding and sewing the text block you will round and back it to create a book that is longer wearing.
You will learn to tip on endpapers and apply premade headbands to the text.
After the text block is prepared you will create the cover and "case in" to finish your new book.

All materials will be provided by the guild.
Students are to bring their own bookbinding kit. See below for the tools you will require (all should be available from the beginner course).

Tools Required: All the bookmaking tools you have used in the beginner course including:
Craft knife with snap off blades
Steel Ruler
Bookbinding Needle
Set Square
Notebook and pen for taking notes

Additional tools and equipment needed will be provided on loan from the Guild.
Also bring your lunch and snacks.
