New: Wire edge binding tutorial by Daniel Kelm October 24, 2022 20:30

Our newest tutorial, the Wire edge binding in collaboration with Daniel Kelm is out!

Wire edge binding is a sophisticated method for creating and hinging together stiff panel pages, using metal wire and thread. Hinges created this way are smooth, quiet, durable and can be used for a wide range of kinetic objects, from codices to accordions to complex platonic shapes.

Daniel Kelm has taught his invention extensively in the last 35+ years, but has never published a manual, until now. Together with Dan, we bring you our usual cocktail of abundant photos and obsessive step-by-step instructions to document two wire edge variations: codex and accordion. Both are fun, straightforward and rewarding projects whose study should allow anyone to expand into more complex configurations.
