Printed tutorial: Wire edge binding (pre-order)
Learn how to make the wire edge binding, a bookbinding structure by Daniel Kelm (USA).
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 to construct 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 photography plethora and didactic obsession to document two wire edge variations: codex and accordion. Both are fun, straightforward and rewarding projects which provide keys to more complex configurations.
Hereby we offer you the opportunity to pre-order your copy, before the planned launch in March 2023. All pre-ordered copies will be hand signed by Daniel.
There are only 50 copies available to pre-order that will be signed.
Please note: you will receive your ordered copy in March 2023.
