I found numerous books on bookbinding in the Fogelman library. I found three especially helpful.
- Basic Bookbinding A.W Lewis
- Adventures in Bookbinding Jeannine Stein
- The Practical Guide To Craft Bookbinding Arthur W. Johnson
Below is chapter 3- Basic Operations of bookbinding. It covers folding paper, sharpening knives, cutting boards, prepping glue and paste, pasting and rubbing down the paper. Below are from Bookbinding Adventures. It covers basic tools that you may encounter while binding books. Some of the tools include : a crafting knife, scissors, a cutting matt, a bone folder, needles and thread, awls and drills, brushes, and adhesives. I also found it helpful to know the correct terms for the parts of a book. (page 23)
