Item details

This bookcloth has been hand-made using only the best quality materials. Have a look at the photos for an example of what it will look like on your book.

If you are new to binding and exploring new techniques of making beautifully hand crafted bindings, the benefit of a book cloth over a plain fabric is that it is backed onto a paper. This gives it excellent adhesion to the boards and additional strength to the fabric. It will also make it much easier to manipulate as the flexibility of the fabric will be considerably reduced.

100% Cotton
Backed with 12gsm Tengujo Tissue
Adhered with Jin Shofu Wheat Starch Paste

NB - cloth may come up a little bigger than that listed.

A2 - 594 x 420mm
A3 - 420 x 297mm
A4 - 297 x 210mm


I have listed all as in stock, but will often have A2 that needs to be cut to A3/A4 to match these listed. So it may not be possible to order all the quantities of all the sizes.

Unfortunately I am unable to list different quantities in different sizes, just that one is in stock or is not.
