Bookbinding for Beginners - 16

by Florence O. Bean - Assistant in Manual Arts - Boston Public Schools

Another Calendar Stand

Plan the back standard to be smaller than the front instead of the same size. Plate XX suggests a suitable trapezoidal shape. In this case the vellum must be of the same length as before, but cut to fit the different widths of the news board
(compare Plate XXI).

Plan a narrow strip of vellum to line the hinge, as in A. Paste this piece and the outside covering as before. Cut the lining paper of the correct shapes and apply to the back.
