At 420 pages, this comprehensive reference guide explores bookbinding techniques in start-to-finish detail, explaining all possible options with clear illustrations and easy-to-follow text, making it easy for artists and designers to compare and choose among them. Covering binding techniques for zines and booklets to more formal structures suitable for large book projects, learn about how binding, stitching, and folding decisions can become a more considered part of the design process.

From types of paper to folding methods, to all of the available paperback and hardcover bindings, to finishing techniques and case studies by contemporary designers, Bookbinding is truly the must-have book for professional designers and production staff.

Bookbinding is also a work of art in its own right, recognized by the Type Director's Club with an award for typographic excellence.
