We will analyze manual techniques to make, with simple means and low costs, models of bindings suitable for self-production of small editions (books, pamphlets or booklets), or unique pieces, taking advantage of the structural parts as both aesthetic and technical factors, useful for characterize a particular edition.

The topics developed will be: deepening of the folding techniques; methods of assembly of the pages (sewing or gluing); variations on the sewings, with or without supports; mounting of covers for flexible brochures or with hard boards applied; making of simple cases and wrappers.

The course is intended for those who have followed the basic course or have acquired equivalent skills.
