Trends in Historical Bookbinding

This class will give you examples of book bindings from the 15th to 20th century and give a broad view of changing trends in materials, production, and decorative patterns of bindings, from the beautiful to the functional. We will identify specific areas to focus attention on to date and localize bindings and be able to distinguish contemporary bindings with later and repaired ones.
