Bradel Binding


Bradel Binding
with Jana Pullman
Sat-Sun, April 1 & 2; 10am-5pm
Binding experience required

Invented in the 19th century by French binder Alexis Bradel, this binding was meant to be a temporary binding. Refined by others, it developed into a permanent binding sturdier than a case binding. It works well with small or large multi-signature books. In this workshop we will make a small paper covered book and a larger book with the signatures rounded, backed, and covered with a three piece cloth case.
