Bookbinding 101: An Introduction (by Karleigh Jae and Daniel Heywood)
Starting tomorrow we’ll be kicking off a series of posts designed to provide a solid foundation of bookbinding knowledge, which, for the new bookbinder, will teach you all you need to know to get

We’ll discuss the materials, the tools you can’t live without, and you’ll learn to make many different book structures and how to combine them. By the end, you should be able to pick up any book on bookbinding and be able to follow along, which sometimes isn’t easy to do without already having some experience and a working knowledge of bookbinding vocabulary.
(Also useful for any beginner is this guide to Book Arts Terminology)
