Dos-à-Dos, Two Ways

with Sue Bjerke
Thursday, June 27; 6-9pm

Learn two styles of dos à dos bindings in this workshop: an Asian stab binding with a soft case and a pamphlet with a wrap closure. The dos-à-dos binding (from the French meaning “back-to-back”) is a structure in which two separate books are bound together such that the fore-edge of one is adjacent to the spine of the other with a shared board between them serving as the back cover of both. This versatile structure offers the possibility of introducing contrasting materials in one book.
