This video has been guided by Peter Verheyen’s article “German Stiffened Paper Bindings”. This binding structure is not confined to the German tradition, but Peter’s article is great resource for understanding it.

The #DASBookbinding Channel is the perfect starting point for learning #bookbinding. It covers foundation skills, simple projects, technical methods, materials and more advanced bookbinding projects. The videos are presented in a tutorial or lesson fashion, which I hope are easy to follow. The knowledge presented is based on traditional techniques which can be used to create traditional books or as a foundation to quality journalling or creative artists’ books. The best way to find what you are looking for is the DAS Bookbinding YouTube Channel guide.
