Bookbinding: Belgian Stitch Journal

For those interested in bookbinding, or those who like to write, or those who are just avid note takers, this is the class for you. Come and learn how to sew a non-adhesive binding with Johanna Smick. Johanna received her BFA in Printmaking from Washington University, and her certificate in Bookbinding and Restoration from the North Bennet Street School in Boston. She now lives in Birmingham where she has her own bindery and print studio.

This structure was originally invented by Anne Goy, a Belgian binder, and is her variation of a Japanese stab binding that lays flat when open. This simple structure incorporates hard covers and a hard spine to a non-adhesive binding, and will be easily recreated at home with limited tools.
