  1. Suave Mechanicals, Vol. 3 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2017

    I had been looking for this book since last year, not realizing it was on your site. I am a great fan of Julia Miller and her work editing and teaching. Most of the essays pertain to my particular love of Medieval bookbinding, so I am quite happy with it, as it is full of valuable information to me. I already own volumes 1 and 2, as well as her Books Will Speak Plain. I am still thinking about the 4th volume.
