|Solving the Production Puzzle: Jigs and Other Tips for Hand Binding Books in Multiples.
Hands On Bookbinding
|The Book Arts Web - Peter D. Verheyen
|It has been both surprising and encouraging to witness the interest in production binding in recent years by the many requests I have had for workshops on the subject. Often it seems like a big hoax when I pull out some basic jig made from scrap binders’ board, assembled with glue or double stick tape, and wrapped in clear plastic tape for ease in cleaning. It is the awe from students when I demonstrate its use that makes me feel like I just pulled a rabbit from a hat.There is nothing new about using jigs for multiple or repetitive bookbinding operations. Nor is there anything unusual about what I have to share, except that these simple aides can make the job go faster, more efficiently and consistently. While I pull from scrap materials at hand in my rural studio, more ambitious jigs can be machined or created with further investigation and reuse of other products in the market. A trip down a home improvement center isle can yield endless possibilities for making jigs.
