Certification Book Binder (CBB) - Book Binder In this introductory-to-intermediate course, students will learn a range of techniques that include hard and soft bindings and book clasp installation. Participants will get exposure to bookbinding tools and materials both traditional and innovative. Bindings in this certification course include: accordion and folded (non-sewn) books, featuring a paper morgue flag book, Japanese stab bindings featuring a cabinet book, and a codex with exposed sewing on tapes.The process of combining printed sheets into finished products such as books, magazines, catalogs, folders, and directories is known as “binding.” When publications or advertising supplements have been printed, they must then be folded, glued, stitched, stapled, trimmed, or otherwise turned into the finished product that will be seen by the public. Bindery workers set up, operate, and maintain the machines that perform these various tasks, while bookbinders perform highly skilled hand finishing operations.
