Limp paper bindings



Historically, limp paper bindings were assumed to be for cheaper publications or for temporary use until a ‘proper’ binding could be put on a book. We’ve since come to realise that many books bound in paper bindings were meant to be permanent or semi-permanent and were simply a more affordable alternative. I am fascinated by them, historically and structurally.

As can perhaps be guessed by the name, these books are quite flexible and what we would now probably call a softcover book.

These books are roughly A6 in size and each one contains a different tone and type of paper, depending on what I had available in the bindery at the time. All pages are unlined, most are laid paper.
