Bibliography - Bookbinding

This bibliography reflects the beginnings of my attempt to get a handle on my personal reference library (below). Groupings are by general category (bookbinding, conservation, exhibition catalogs...) and then sorted by author. Currently only the "bookbinding manuals" are online. Of these, 159 are in English, 64 in German, 13 in French, and the others in Danish, Dutch, and Italian. This will be followed in due course by the book and paper conservation and preservation manuals... I will likely never get caught up...

The Library
Click to enlarge.
Only the far left section in front of the book truck is in the database...
Book truck holds titles relating to the German bookbinding trade and history, many used for Ernst Collin bibliography project and related shared via Pressbengel Project blog. Sections to right of that hold bibliography, history of book, binder/artist bios, printmaking, letterpress, typography, books about artist's books; then next over exhibition catalogs, decorated papers, conservation. Far right is miscellaneous titles and periodicals/journals...

The master file itself is in a FileMaker Pro database. Fields not for public consumption and duplicate records have been deleted for the web version. The description field is drawn from the table of contents of the book and should give a general idea of what the book is about, and in some cases may be subjective. As my collections spans the late 17th - 21st centuries, and given the fact that perceptions of the merit of techniques have evolved, the date may, or may not be important for the user's needs. This bibliography is a work in progress, and I welcome comments on it.

The bibliography is also available as a spreadsheet on Google Drive.
