The Binding Process
Go to Steps: 1-3 | 4-6 | 7-9 | 10-12 | 13-15 | 16-18 | 19-21 | 22-24 | 25-27 | 28-29


Step 19
Next is to finish off the book’s paper edge. The traditional method is to shave each page down. I do this with a straight edge razor blade while the book is clamped.
 

Step 20
I have developed my own method of edge finishing as well. To achieve a sculpted deckled edge on some books, I hand rip each page to form a particular shape complimentary to the book’s intended cover composition.

 

Step 21
To achieve a thick durable cover, two or more layers of cover board are glued together and pressed beneath white foam condensed under heavy pressure.
