The Case for Leather with Todd Pattison

The Case for Leather: A “Fairly” Simple Leather-Spine Binding with Todd Pattison

Saturday, February 22, 2014
9 am to 5 pm
Library Company of Philadelphia

Leather can seem a bit intimidating to work with, but in this one-day workshop we made two bindings with  leather spines. Using  binding techniques Todd learned in Switzerland, we will made a variation on of a case structure that allows for incorporating leather with a minimal amount of paring or shaping. Todd will also showed us how leather can be used on the boards.

Participants brought two textblocks that were sewn, rounded and backed.
