It’s Been a While
So this is the post where I apologise to all my readers for not posting for so long: sorry! I have a good excuse—he is 6 months old soon. I have had a busy time at work, and have been engaged in other creative pursuits, bookbinding being just one of many creative things I love to do.
Anyway, I don’t want to freak you out or anything.
Pictures are Worth Heaps of Words
I thought that it would be an excellent idea to not type another word, and just let my pictures do the talking. So here is an image gallery of the steps involved in adhesive binding.
Hey Jacob. I have experimented with dozens of adhesives for the same purpose. I found PVA to work, but the best stuff is shoe Goop. What’s your opinion?
Thanks for the comment.
I use PVA mainly because it soaks into the fibers of the paper and creates a really strong bond. I also like that it is water soluble, and cleans up easily. It is also flexible when dried.
Well, i find your blog engrossing, but I have no constructive comment except to say “anyone who can do bookbinding is pretty clever!” How good is it that these talents are not forgotten. And I just love your six month old distraction! Mum
