As noted last week, the Numismatic Bibliomania Society table at this summer's American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money® will feature a special live bookbinding demonstration.
NBS Bookbinding Demo at ANA Convention
Our bookbinding word of the week is Curved Needle. A curved needle is useful for sewing thread behind signature knots, as depicted here. A straight needle requires that the entire needle be pulled behind the knot, a tight space at the spine. The curved needle makes this more navigable, as only a small part of the needle is behind the knot at any one time. We'll be set up at the NBS table on Wednesday, August 9, with all necessary supplies on hand.
