Victorian Bookbinders Guild

For all interested in the Art, Craft and Practice of Bookbinding                                             

Before I went away I had the pleasure of producing some mockups, then proof copies of a childrens book, as test marketing samples. 25 copies and an interesting exersize working out how to produce them efficiently and cleanly. See some pictures here.  Boards between folios, using the  folio is a hinge, with the outer folio as a wrapper. 

 But even more, we just (28 Nov 2017) received an update  the pics are attached in the gallery below

Hi Jim,

just wanted to thank you again for all your help!  As a result of the wonderful set of books that you made, we ended up getting a big order from a Viking webshop based in Sweden (www.Grimfrost.com), and an offer to launch it here at Little Bookroom!

We therefore did a print run of 500 with 1010 Printing (which has an Australian office in Queensland) and had the launch a couple of weeks ago, which was a huge amount of fun, and now this morning Grimfrost has just ordered another run of 500!

So thank you again; you and the Bookbinders Guild made this possible!   Rose Bush.
