 A Tight Back binding is a historical binding where the book has a leather spine that is adhered directly to the spine, meaning that the covering material flexes as the spine is opened and closed.

During this 2 day  weekend workshop you will be guided by Doug Mitchell and myself to stitch your book block onto cords, form the covers, pare the leather for the spines. before rounding the spine and completing your book. All materials and tools will be provided  along with step by step demonstration and practice.

This course is not suitable for complete beginners.

Stapleford Granary has easy car parking and is within walking distance of Shelford Railway station.
