American Springback Ledger by Richard Horton

SKU: TBK011201





American Springback Ledger describes how to make or restore the most commonly encountered American ledger model from the 1880's to the 1920's.  It describes the characteristics and history of the papers and leathers used, and the working properties of the structure itself.  The steps and their diagrams and illustrations offer one practical way to achieve a correctly functioning and historically correct model of the American springback ledger.

As a style, the springback is rooted in the "trade" binding tradition and known for its robustness and ability to lie flat and open for extended periods of time.  Historically this made the style ideal for accounting and record keeping books, and also make it useful as style for modern guestbooks, bibles and other similar books.
