Subject: Cambras Spine-former


In ?The Complete Book of Bookbinding,? Josep Cambras demonstrates a ?spine
former.? This is a block of wood with a number of groves of varying
diameters
cut into it and, as the name implies, is used to shape the spine of a book
cover.

I?ve searched Talas, etc. as well as googled the term, but can?t find where
I
can buy a spine former.

Does anyone know where one can be purchased?

Thanks.
