  1. Happy New Year Darryn, I just saw the fireworks display for Sydney on youtube, pretty spectacular. The wife and I wanted to retire “down under,” but immigration laws are pretty strict, so we may plan our 50th wedding anniversary that way.
    I wanted to thank you for all your help and videos, especially our last correspondence. In addition to your outstanding videos and website postings, the names of the other book binders and other links were extremely helpful, like my treasure box of books that are broken from my local book store, I am hoping to pick up speed in 2020.
    My personal email is below but I also use my LZ129 Brazil mostly on youtube. So once again, Thanks and Happy New Year and “so say all of us”

  2. Hello there !
    Say I want to make a wooden book cover (like for the sawn coptic method), in which direction should the grain of the wood be ?

    If the grain is vertical, I fear the stress on the sawn part will make is split vertically along the holes for sawing. If the grain is horizontal, then if the distance between the holes for sawing and the border of the wood seems to become critical as there is not much wood supporting it.
    (or maybe wood is more solid than cardboard and I’m worrying for nothing, and both grain direction is okay ?)

  3. Dear Darryn,
    Thank you so much for your inspirational videos and what you are doing to, as I see it, encourage more people to take up the craft. One of the big problems we face in the UK is getting young people to take up bookbinding. Your approach, which is down to earth and practical, is just what is needed: straight forward without the over complication and obfuscation that is so off-putting to beginners.
    I really enjoyed the spring back binding tutorial and your recent edge guilding video.
    Kind regards
    Clive Owen
