The Thread that Binds, Interviews with Private Practice Bookbinders by Pamela Train Leutz. Pamela sets out to interview 21 bookbinders to find out if she should pursue bookbinding full time. Set up as a series of questions and answers with each bookbinder and includes both a picture of each bookbinder, and of their workspaces. I would have liked to have seen pictures of the bindings, but she did provide web addresses for those binders that had them.

Great overview of the profession, that really brings out the passion of the binders. Answering such questions as how did you get started, what traits make you a good binder, what would you recommend to someone just getting started, and more.

While she did a good job of bringing out how hard it is to make a living at this, I would have enjoyed reading more about the financial side of the business.

Recommended for anyone interested in the book arts and especially for anyone interested in pursuing it for a career as it contains a wealth of information. ( )
