The Pleated Hinge (course code: PH-01-24)


The Pleated Hinge is a glueless structure which is sewn on vellum tapes.

Prefectly fit as a conservation binding but also appropriate for all books where you don’t want or can’t use glue.

In this workshop we will make two books: one with a flexible paper cover and one with a hard vellum/paper cover.

This binding invites you to make your own variations.

For experienced binders only
