Edition Binding

a workshop presented by Priscilla Spitler

 for intermediate and experienced book binders

at the University of Iowa Center for the Book, Iowa City, Iowa.

This two-day workshop is designed to help hand binders overcome unique problems associated with multiple or edition binding. Beginning with a prototype case bound book time saving steps will be introduced, including the construction and use of jigs for more efficient and consistent production. We will cover teamwork and planning - breaking down the edition into individual steps in order to move books through the binding process. Dealing with the bidding process while developing a relationship with printers/publishers and other clients will also be discussed. Starting with hand sewing students will work on three mock editions (printed or blank papers, to be determined) to be case bound - the most efficient binding structure for multiple binding (quarter, full cloth case binding, plus a more refined ½ bound case with a rounded cloth spine and cloth corners). When possible, the class will work together to execute the edition, as it would be done in a working bindery. Students will be rotated to the various steps in order to gain experience working in multiples from sewing to lining spines to case making and casing-in. By the end of the workshop students will receive copies of the edition plus models of jigs and numerous handouts. They will gain the experience of seeing how quickly a book edition can be finished and they will learn to plan for efficient and consistent work while appreciating the value of repetition.
