Introducing Bookbinding. Together with: the original art for the dust jacket.
Oxford: Oxford Polytechnic Press, 1984. Revised first edition. Robinson’s classic introduction to the craft of bookbinding, with the inclusion of the original artwork for the book’s jacket design. The artwork is rendered in oil on board, painted in black and white on a gray background, and is framed in natural wood. Robinson’s revised edition provides instruction not only for standard case-bound and library-style bindings, but also techniques for finishing in foil and gold leaf, advice on equipment and materials, and commentary on rebinding preparation, single-section binding, and blocking, all with step-by-step visual aids. Book bound in black paper over boards, fine. Dust jacket crisp at edges, with toning along spine and top of front and rear panels. Artwork also fine. Unmarked as such, but both from Robinson’s own library. (Artwork measures 15 by 5 11/16 in.; 385x145mm). Item #28074
