The Numismatic Bibliomania Society table at this summer's American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money® will feature a special live bookbinding demonstration. Len Augsburger submitted this update.
Bookbinders Unite at the ANA Convention
Our bookbinding term of the week is case binding. In this process, multiple signatures are sewn together prior to being
cased. The sewn text block is then attached, via the endpapers, to the cover or
case, which is made of cardboard covered with paper, cloth, or leather.
In our bookbinding demonstration at the ANA, we will sew and case bind a simple example (the Asylum index for 2013-2022), which is illustrated here. This demo will run all day Wednesday, August 9 at the NBS booth, table 433.
