I took classes for three years with a woman who ran a bindery in New Haven.
Her business is called "The Bindery" (simple eh?)  I learned alot about
case bindings - didn't get much further although I did do a quarter leather
binding.  I don't know what your skill level is, but she was a great place
to start.
