Beginners and experts alike can benefit from this remarkably easy guide. It starts with a complete list of necessary materials and tools.

User Review  - fletcherd - LibraryThing

A decent manual for bookbinding. It is certainly not the best or most accessible book for beginners, but it has been helpful in explaining tricks and concepts once I had a more firm grasp of the basics. Luckily, despite being almost 50 years, only the language and not the content is dated. Read full review
