Bookbinding out of the box

Printed tutorial: Knitted Boards binding OUT OF STOCK


Temporarily out of stock.

Learn how to make the Knitted Boards Binding: a bookbinding project by Marja Wilgenkamp (NL) in which bookbinding meets knitting.

Most hard cover techniques rely on one fundamental operation: covering. What if for once we skipped this operation altogether and used instead a material whose 'naked' appearance is what is appreciated and put forward? In the knitted boards binding, one does not feel the need to add decoration or anything else to the delicate interlacing pattern which results from the knitting process. The material itself is enough, the final object is convincing, both aesthetically and technically and radiates extraordinary beauty and originality.
