Second Saturday Bookbinding Series: Dos-a-Dos Binding

Dos-a-Dos Binding (with long-stitch spines)
Saturday, June 10, 2017, Noon-4:00 PM
First-time this binding is offered at the VABC.
This old structure binds two books (text blocks) back to back onto the same cover — with the spines facing in opposite directions. This old binding has been revived in recent years in the modern book arts movement because of its dramatic presentation. Participants will learn a variation that uses long-stitch on the spines.
