Texte du rabat

The fine art of hand-binding books, repairing old volumes, and taking proper care of bound works in a home or public library is a skill that has been all but forgotten in these high speed, hi-tech, computer driven days. But for all of us who still love the smell of the printed paper page, the feel of a cloth or leather cover lying open in our hands, and the comforting certainty that all our treasured tomes will remain forever available for our reading pleasure - even when the power fails! - this ancient and important art is one we can ill afford to leave to others to preserve. Douglas Cockerell's classic Bookbinding and the Care of Books: A Handbook for Amateurs, Bookbinders and Librarians (original publication date 1910) provides a thoroughly explored and profusely illustrated single-volume course in Old World-style hand bookbinding and repair, written in accessible language aimed directly at the lay-craftsperson. A "must-have" volume for true bibliophiles everywhere!
