A Book by Its Cover (Leather Bookbinding)

Book by Its Cover, A (Leather Bookbinding)

CINE Golden Eagle Award
Leather binding and the embellishment of books was once a dying skill, but recently has enjoyed a renewed popularity. People today decorate books they treasure; also custom leather bookbinding can be a lucrative hobby. The resulting works of art display the jewel-like precision of the tooling and gold leafing that is found on few books today. This classic documentary introduces viewers to two master craftsmen, L.E. Hertzberg, President of Hertzberg New Method, Inc., and Fred James, Secretary and Treasurer of Hertzberg Craftsmen, who illustrate the painstaking process involved. First, Mr. James guides viewers step-by-step through the process of binding a book in leather; then Mr. Hertzberg continues the tooling process using hand-made tools that have been passed down through his family for over 100 years. The end result is a beautiful leather-bound book with gold tooling of the hinge and spine that will give a book permanence and beauty. Produced by Iowa State University. 99/08DE IJSCA 15 min.
