In this class, participants will be introduced to the traditional methods of creating a book all from the comfort and safety of your own home. These methods have been employed from about the first century through the mid-19th-century. Participants will hand-sew the book sections (signatures); secure the hard covers; add a leather spine, and decorative paper to the covers; and lay down the endpapers in this process. The class will last approximately 5 hours.
