Single Section Staple Binding in Stone
Workshop taught by Coleen Curry
July 29-31, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 – 5:00
This three-day class will explore binding structures using real stone veneer in the techniques created by Sün Evrard. You will construct a modified historical structure with conservation principles in mind, using the stone veneer, wood and wire. The single-section staple binding is simple but is executed with a lot of care and attention to detail. The binding is sewn pamphlet style and then attached to the boards using copper wire, wood and parchment tackets as secondary sewing. We will decorate the bindings by cutting into the stone and painting with acrylic. Students will create one binding, and if time allows, we will explore uses of the stone as a decorative element for bindings or boxes.

The Millimeter Binding or Edelpappband is German in origin and makes a simple, elegant binding. With thin boards, edges of leather and decorated papers for the covers, it creates graceful detail on thin printed or blank books. The book is sewn, glued, and boards are attached to the text block. Then edges or corners are reinforced with leather before final covering in paper. Students will complete one Edelpappband binding during the class.
