Before and AfterThis wiki is the home of an article that appears in heavily edited (in a good way) form in Make magazine, Volume 5 (also available now as an Instructable). While the editors did a great job of distilling ramblings that far exceeded the word limit I was given into a concise and useful article, the limits of space prohibited much of the additional description, background, nuance, and pictures of my original piece. So, I thought it was worth posting my first draft. What it lacks in polish I hope it makes up for in depth.

 

Here are the sections of the original article to help you navigate the site:

 

  1. OldeSchoolBookbinding
  2. StrippingTheExistingCover
  3. CreatingSignatures
  4. PreparingSignaturesForStitching
  5. StitchingTheSignatures
  6. GluingTheSpine
  7. BuildingCoverBoards
  8. AttachingTheCoverBoards
  9. CoveringTheCover
  10. FinishingUp
