After making a couple of instructive videos on sewing books, I was going to make a tutorial video of sewing headbands. But I realized that I could make a tutorial of rounding and backing as I had to do it, before the headbanding anyhow. So, here it is. I hope this video is useful for beginners in bookbinding. Thanks for your interest in the trade. MHR~ P.S. I misspelled "endsheet" once on the video... Sorry..

NOTE: The hammer used on this video is not a backing hammer, which indeed is the tool to back and round books. But as my purpose of creating these tutorial videos is to encourage general population to start getting involved in the bookbinding trade, I always try to demonstrate things with ordinary items as much as possible, so that it doesn't discourage viewers from trying it just because they don't have the particular equipment to do the job. The methods featured on my tutorial videos are very basic and often I have to change a little in order to make it more feasible to the beginners. So it should not reflect the real trade of bookbinding. Yet my instructions are thought through so that the end result will be perfectly decent if you follow them.
