City & Guilds Bookbinding Certificates

Well here they are – certificates to show my City & Guilds course in bookbinding, I have to say I am quite proud of myself. Not sure if you can read the text, but it says that I have completed the general Design for Craft module and the more specific Bookbinding module.

Next step is Camberwell Art School, for Book Conservation, which I’m starting in September – keep in touch!

C&G Week 14 | Lacing onto limp boards

So I didn’t get an awful lot done on Tuesday, I had a bit of a panic that it would all go wrong – lack of confidence – however, I managed to overcome it in the end and get going again, perhaps it was first day jitters! It seems the further you go on a book, the more is at stake, one thing could easily go wrong! 

The first ribbons are now laced so the cover is not going anywhere. For the rest of the lacing I was thinking of some sort of checker board with voids, but I’m not entirely sure how to do it. We start the slip case next week which is quite exciting!
