Quarter Leather Flatback Lap-Case Binding

Quarter Leather Flatback Lap-Case Binding

Presented by J. Willard Marriott Library at J. Willard Marriott Library

This course focuses on the construction of a flatback lap-case binding. The lap-case binding, sometimes mistakenly called a modified Bradel binding, has been used frequently over the years for editions bound by Jensen Bindery, BookLab, Inc. and BookLab II. The structure has continuously evolved through its many applications and this class tracks that evolution, specifically addressing structure, materiality, and the relationships between parts to make a beautiful looking and functioning book. Examples of various lap case bindings are available for students to examine. Previous bookbinding experience required, preferably previous leather working skills.
