Paper has been used for book covers long before the modern paperback. Since the 16th century, paper covers have proven to be strong and attractive. This class will explore the use of paper for making covers for hand-sewn books, concentrating on three paper covered books with sewn pages: one on supports and laced into the cover, another with a linking stitch and a pasted cover, and a long stitch that shows
on the spine while attaching the pages. Participants will go home with three hand made books to use as sketchbooks or journals, or to give as a gifts.
This workshop runs 12 hours (2 days).
