Bibliography - Bookbinding, Decorated Papers, ...
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. Of the "bookbinding manuals," 177 are in English, 70 in German,
14 in French, and the others in Danish, Dutch, and Italian. Decorated
papers are now on a separate tab/sheet (At bottom of frame), and book
and paper conservation and preservation manuals are being added in due
course. I will likely never get caught up...

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 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
