The Numismatic Bibliomania Society table at this summer's American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money® will feature a special live bookbinding demonstration. Len Augsburger submitted this update.
NBS Bookbinding at the ANA Convention
This week's bookbinding term is buckram. While sometimes not appearing as cloth, buckram covering is indeed cloth-based and has been soaked in a glue or starch solution in order to reinforce the overall binding. This makes the book more durable, and buckram binding is typically employed in public libraries, where usage may be higher than within a private library.
Illustrated here are examples of buckram cloth, with two different finishes. We'll be using a simpler treatment in our bookbinding demo at the ANA, with plain boards covered in marbled paper. In Tom Harrison's announcement of NBS events at the ANA, the identity of the book we are binding is revealed.
