Intermediate Binding: Bradel Binding

with Jana Pullman
Saturday-Sunday, April 18 & 19; 10am-5pm

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, working well with small or large multi-signature books. In this workshop, you will make a small paper-covered book and a larger book with the signatures rounded and backed, covered with a three-piece cloth case.
