Books were once the luxury of the wealthy, bound in leather or silk to suit the individual. As the literate public and its appetite for books increased, publishers began to take on the task of binding, greatly reducing the need for independent bookbinders.
The Industrial Revolution brought about several technological advances that turned the craft of hand bookbinding into a process that could produce books en masse. Cloth treated with adhesive and covers made independently of the book’s text block and then attached by endpapers allowed books to be bound in large quantities. The invention of mechanical presses enabled the cloth bindings to be imprinted, stamped and gilded to resemble the fine bindings traditionally produced by hand.
Publishers’ bindings enjoyed popularity from 1830 to the end of the 1930s when they were replaced by decorative dust jackets. This exhibit explores the artistic development of publishers’ bindings, their styles and reflections upon the events of the time, with examples taken from the State Library of Massachusetts.
Special thanks to Ann-Katreen Hollon, Marissa Sorek, Krista Barresi, Kate Boutin, April Pierce and Angela White for their work on this exhibit.
