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.
