argument about the innards of a linotype machine, this is the book for you. It also lists the
people important to the history of the book,
from Didot to Goudy. It is thorough, accurate, and affordable.

Paola Rosati: BOOKBINDING BASICS It is called Basic, but it is a very thorough Basic, everything from pamphlet stitched notebooks to a half cloth and paper journal with a rounded spine. All the basics are covered thoroughly, from cutting, folding, and measuring to gluing, sawing, and sewing on tapes. She shows how to make a sewing frame from a 4-legged stool, and how to use it. She also shows how to make books without a sewing frame, such as using nails to bind together loose sheets. One the most interesting projects is a book made of a series of publications (each is a multi-paged, stapled together publication). The sewing technique allows the finished book to open well and lay flat and it can either use the publication�s cover or a cloth and paper cover can be attached.
SB, 160 pp., filled with color illustrations.
