book materials & techniques Bookbinding Materials and Techniques 1700-1920
By Margaret Lock (Toronto, 2003).
160pp., illustrated by 122 b&w photographs and diagrams
ISBN 0-9695091-9-7
This book is a revised and expanded version of Two Centuries of Bookbinding: Materials and Techniques 1700-1900, published by CBBAG in 1991. At 160 pages and with 122 black and white illustrations, the new book is more than twice as long as the previous edition. The bindings reproduced include Canadian as well as European and American examples. Most of the photographs were taken by Margaret Lock, Diana Patterson, and Brian F. Summers. The diagrams were drawn by Sophie Nicol. The book was designed by Roy Nicol, and printed at Coach House Printing, Toronto.
     The book describes each step in hand binding a book, and explains the practical and aesthetic considerations that influenced these techniques. It then shows how all of these processes changed over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries due to mechanization, specialization within the trade, the vagaries of taste, the availability and cost of materials, and developments in printing, publishing, and book selling. Bookbinders, book collectors, and all those who are interested in the book as a physical object will enjoy this book.
