The Numismatic Bibliomania Society table at this summer's American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money® will feature a special live demonstration.
NBS Bookbinding Demo at the ANA
The NBS will host a bookbinding demo during the ANA convention, at the NBS club table, on Wednesday, August 9. Being book collectors, we should learn a bit about how they are constructed! All supplies will be furnished for those who wish to participate, including unbound pages for a new, unpublished work. Prior to the convention, we will reveal further information on this volume, copies of which will not be otherwise available until after the convention.
Our bookbinding term of the week is cambric. The cambric is a mid-grade, woven fabric used as a spine reinforcement material in book making. This provides connective tissue for the loose boards within the covers. The cambric is glued in underneath the front and rear pastedown pages. If you take apart a hardbound book (just don't tell anyone you did so!), you may notice this at the spine.
