Floating Boards Binding Technique

Joy Tonkin

This demonstration will show the floating boards technique which is based on a ”Bradel Einband mit Schweben den Deckeln” and was developed by Brother Edgard Claes, a Belgium binder.    The textblock is sewn on tapes or cords supports which are attached to the textblock and are the only attachments – the boards “float” away from the textblock.   It is a binding style that offers extensive design possibilities and demands attention to the accuracy of measurements.
