When creating a newly-bound book, or rebinding an old book, the options for cover materials and decorative touches are numerous.

Alternatively, the cover can be decorated by printing an image and/or text on the cloth or paper binding.

The binding process can start with nothing more than a stack of loose sheets of paper, ready to be made into a fullbound volume…or with an already existing book whose cover is beyond repair.

Following is a summary of some of the options available for any new binding:

Cover Types

Gold and Blind Tooling

Raised Cords

Hand-Sewn Headbands

Handmade and Marbled Paper
