The Book Binding Guy Video Workshop DVD

There's a reason this ancient craft has been taught through apprenticeship — the best way to learn it is to watch someone and then try it yourself. In this spirit, Frankie Ridolfi, also known as "the Book Binding Guy," passes the secrets of quality book-making on to you. Hand-bound books are extraordinary personal gifts that friends and loved ones will treasure.

In detailed steps, Ridolfi demonstrates the nuances of tearing down paper, stitching a solid book block structure, attaching hard covers, wrapping authentic end bands, and finishing the exterior with leather and decorative paper. The finished example is a blank journal that exudes beauty, durability, and a human touch.

Bonus materials include a materials checklist, a tools checklist, two templates, a printing primer, and "cheat sheets" to keep you organized.

DVD. 90 minutes.
