Download complete project material on The Production Of Full Colour Case Bound Book (Download Project) from chapter one to five 


The production of full color case bound book cuts across the various sections of printing (the pre press, the press and the post press sections). Pre press: The design/planning was done on the computer using a software application package (Corel draw). The designed images were then output on a line film only by the image setter of the color separation and scanner on an A3 size film. We thereafter proceeded to lay the film on the master substrate (Plates) and exposures were made, developed, and preserved the plates. Press: 


The printing was done on the Kord 64 Printing machine. Post Press: The ruled sheets were folded into sections to form the book blocks. The sections were gathered, sewn, glued and end and fore sheets attached and trimmed. The case was prepared using the printed sheets and strawboard. The book block was finally cased- in which gave a complete case bound book.

            1.0     INTRODUCTION

There are various types of book binding designed to suit specific purpose; these types can be grouped under three (3) distinct branches of book binding carried out in the binding section. They include:-

(A)Letterpress case binding.

–         External letter press binding

The purpose of this study in printing is to enlighten people that, apart from binding cloth and leather, other printed material can be used to produce the cover of a case bound book.

In other words, like every aspect of human endeavor, the print industry constantly experience changes because of rapid change in technology experienced today. This project on full color case binding will stand as a guide to those that will like to do a project like this.

Furthermore, some book binders usually use binding cloth and leather to produce their book cover. It will enable them to have more practical knowledge of how printed materials is used for book cover and to those that intend to take up book binding as a career.


The main aim and objectives of this study is to enable us to have more practical knowledge of how books are being bound. And to learn how they can be protected from sunlight or any weather condition that it has achieved effects on books.

Ø To project the practice of using printed cards as cover material for binding books.

Ø To afford us the experience of using printed paper or card as cover material.
