This course offers an introduction to the use of leather in Book Arts. Students will focus on traditional techniques for creating both historic and modern book structures. Knife care, paring and application of leather, as well as excellence in book forwarding will be emphasized. Students will sew multi-colored headbands, and be asked to design and execute several books in quarter leather. A discussion and demonstration of inlay/onlay and tooling will offer students a glimpse into the visual opportunities afforded by this exciting medium. Prerequisite: CBK 6120 Binding I.
