IAP 2010: Bookbinding in the Japanese Tradition

Participants will join the Preservation Services team to create a side-sewn soft-cover book using the techniques of traditional Japanese bookbinding.

The workshop will include an overview of the history, materials, and techniques of the Japanese bookmaking tradition, which is markedly different from that used to create Western books. Each participant will complete one blank book covered in beautiful Japanese decorative paper.
