Wild Binders Hand Made Christmas: Dos-à-Dos Binding - In-Bindery Wednesday 30th November 2022
$50.00 - $150.00
A dos-à-dos is a binding structure in which two separate books are bound together 'back-to-back'. This is fun structure with many potential for personalisation and a great gift!
The dos-à-dos format dates back at least to the 16th century, though they were most common in England in the first half of the 17th century. Usually used for books requiring two complimentary or opposite subjects; New and Old Testament, Happy and Sad, Good and Evil, etc.
A very traditional bookbinding structure, for this workshop you will learn to bind a dos-à-dos in hardcover, finished in book cloth and decorative paper.
Date: 30th November 2022
Time: 7 - 9pm
All materials and tools are supplied at the Bindery.
