106 Archaeology of Bookbinding - Limp Bindings (Long and Kettle
Stitch Bindings)
March 14-18, 2011
(Course No. 106) (2), (3)
Instructor: Barbara Hassel
Language: German and English
Duration: 5 Days

Limp bindings over a long period of time have not obtained the
adequate attention of researchers in bookbinding. This was
probably due to the lack of gilding and decoration. If at all,
limp bindings were reported as interim bindings. There exists,
however, a huge variety of flexible bindings with very
interesting features. The course is composed of lectures with
double slide projection based on the research of Prof. Janos A.
Szirmai and hands-on practical work. Each participant will do
five to six limp vellum bindings with different types of sewing,
such as tacketing, long stitch and kettle stitch and with
various types of flaps and closures. This course is aimed at
bookbinders, conservators or others with equivalent knowledge.

Price: CHF 1'050.00 (Material costs depending on usage)
Admission Policy: Limited to 6 participants.
