Articulated Binding

  • San Francisco Center for the Book 375 Rhode Island San Francisco, CA (map)

An indestructible cover: inspired by Italy’s 1970’s solution to broken Yellow Pages bindings in public phone booths; this 360-degree flexible binding offers many advantages because it bends and does not break! This binding style offers visual and tactile delight, employing strips of articulated hard board covered with marbled fabric. In this workshop, the instructor will guide students through the art of this rare binding technique. Students will create an articulated blank journal that can beautifully withstand the ravages of time.
