Fan Glued Bindings with Eric Alstrom. Learn two bindings using a technique known as the double fan adhesive or simply, fan glued binding. This method of adhering pages is accomplished with PVA glue and requires no sewing. In its simplest form it can be accomplished using two boards and two C clamps. The first book will be with a cloth "quarter joint" binding. The second structure will be a "tightback" with a leather spine. Each book will include functional endsheets. A popular feature of the adhesive binding is that it allows single or loose pages to easily be bound. In addition, fan glued bindings lay almost perfectly flat when opened. Your two finished books will be functional, durable, and attractive.
