Beyond the utility of a good binding, there is a great deal of aesthetic pleasure to be gained from a book that opens easily and flatly, and from the decoration, the harmony of colors, and the brilliance of gold.Arthur Johnson, one of Britain's foremost designer-bookbinders, has written a manual of the craft whose clarity and comprehensiveness make it invaluable to the student and the professional. It covers equipment, tools, and materials; all stages of preparation end papers, sewing, rounding and backing, edge-gilding, etc.); different binding styles; and the finer points of finishing. The illustrations show not only tools, materials, and processes, but also a selection of striking and beautiful examples of the binders art, both historic and modern. 224 pages.

Classics: Books For Life, Jane Gleeson-White
10 Jane Gleeson-White Classics: Books For Life
Knopf 241209 Australia 2005 1740513177 / 9781740513173 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket What makes a classic? For me, it's a book I can't imagine having lived without; a truthful, wholly imagined world, in astonishing language, by a writer unafraid to probe those things that scare us and scar us and make us human Charlotte Wood, author of The Submerged Cathedral, in CLASSICS- BOOKS FOR LIFE Mark Twain defined a literary classic as 'something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read'. But what was true in the nineteenth century doesn't hold today. In our uncertain modern times, not only do books considered classics still fill the shelves of many bookshops, but these books continue to exert a powerful influence on contemporary culture -- some in obvious ways, such as the film and television adaptations of of the works of Homer, Jane Austen, George Eliot, Charles Dickens and Henry James; other in less obvious ways, through their enduring impact on fellow writers, artists and musicians. 403 pages.

Future Libraries, R. Howard Bloch and Carla Hesse
20 R. Howard Bloch and Carla Hesse Future Libraries
University of California Press 227915 Berkeley, California 1995 0520088115 / 9780520088115 Softcover Near Fine Condition As the digital revolution sweeps us toward the twenty-first century, what issues, passions, and anxieties are evoked when we consider the place of the library in the future? Humanists and social scientists are only beginning to recognize that the current revolution in the dissemination of knowledge is comparable to the one that followed the advent of printing, when huge numbers of books first became available. On the eve of the opening of the Bibliothèque de France, which has become a lightning rod for the issues raised by the electronic revolution, this collection brings together distinguished lawyers, historians, librarians, computer scientists, linguists, and architects to assess the future of libraries, books, and the printed word. The contributors represent a wide range of institutions: the Bibliothèque de France, the Library of Congress, law schools, architectural firms, universities. We are still exploring the ramifications of revolutionary techniques for writing and reading; new modes of storing and distributing data; new possibilities for acquiring, reconfiguring, and integrating knowledge. Future Libraries does much to stimulate and inform the debate on a revolution that will affect our most diverse cultural forms and our deepest social structures. 159 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Technology; Science & Technology; Books About Books. ISBN: 0520088115. ISBN/EAN: 9780520088115. Inventory No: 227915. Paperback
