AMERICAN ACADEMY OF BOOKBINDING | Exploring Doublures

Hosted/Organized by: American Academy of Bookbinding

 

AUGUST 10 – 14, 2020 | MONIQUE LALLIER | $800
This one-week course will cover a variety of techniques to craft stunning doublures for your bindings. Monique will explore various methods to prepare the boards for doublures including: edge to edge leather, sunken suede, silk and moiré, doublures decorated with onlays, inlays or tooling. Monique will also explore non-traditional materials to use for doublures such as metal or wood veneers.

Students will make a series of plaquettes to learn the techniques that can then be used for future project reference. They may also bring books prepared to Monique’s specifications if they would like to apply doublures to the book.

Prerequisites: Intermediate Fine Leather Binding or equivalent experience. Students should understand traditional bookbinding techniques to maximize their learning experience.
