Course Overview 

In this weekend workshop, students will learn how to convert a paperback into an impressive hardcover book. Students may bring their own paperback books (although the books must be in good condition and approved by the instructor) or students can use a book provided by the instructor. The finished book will employ a sewn binding with a hardcover, spine lettering, either in full cloth or quarter cloth with marbled papers.
