Description: Step-by-step instructions for completing the "millimeter binding." What we call the “millimeter” binding in North America is a “nobler” version of the German “pappband,” or paper binding, hence the name “edelpappband.” The technique is based on the German case (Bradel) binding which is covered in paper. What distinguishes the technique is that cloth, leather, or vellum trim is added to the head and tail, foredges, and/or corners for greater durability, making the book more elegant at the same time. This style of binding is well suited for smaller, thinner, books, and with the right proportions creates an extremely elegant binding suitable for editions as well as one-of-a-kind bindings.
