Comprehensive study of the science and history of manufacturing bookcloth; focusing on the development and use of starch-filled bookcloth in particular, from building factories to the formation of the Winterbottom Book Cloth Company in 1891, which dominated the industry for almost a century.

The real treasure of this book is the section at the end containing 36 tipped-in samples of the qualities and 30 examples of designs, which bring the processes and treatments described in the text to life in a way that words alone simply cannot.
