Separate Board Structure or Simplified Binding
Monique prefers to call this technique 'separate board structure' because it is not a 'simple' structure; it is a precise technique. It is less demanding than a laced-in binding but not simple at all for beginners. The beauty of this technique is that the spine can be in leather and the boards covered with decorative papers, cloth or leather. If the boards are covered in leather, the design is worked on the boards prior to attaching them to the book. The spine is titled before hand as well.
In this class students will make a leather spine and the boards will be covered with decorative papers. This technique is better suited for thin books that are four-five sections and not more than eight including the end paper sections. No prior book making experience is required.Advanced Fine Binding in Telluride, CO | October 17-28, 2011

The focus of the class will be on learning sound bookbinding techniques with special emphasis on working with leather. Students will complete a half-leather binding in the first week and a full-leather binding in the second week. This is an entry-level course to fine binding.
