Thanks to the Yahoo Artists of the Round Table, blog readers, other readers, and some members of the Sonoma County Book Arts Group who are working through the book in 2012! Future reprints of MHB will include the corrections.

(p. 13) Architectural divider should be Academic divider. You can see one here.

(p. 13) Spacing bars are actually just square brass tubes. You can see some here. I have also used wooden dowels.

(p. 14) A woodworker's wedge tool is a kind of chisel with three beveled edges and a flat bottom and back. You can see a picture at

(p. 44) You only need one strip that is 2" x 11" (5.1 x 27.9 cm), not two.

(p. 51) Guest Book variation on the blog here.

(p. 55) Slot & Tab has to have a bare minimum of two pages to work, ten pages is a good baseline. Twenty really shows off the spine. Once the book gets over about an inch thick it starts to lean. And it works really, really well with painted fabric, felt, or other cloth that has been hemmed. See blog post and photos here. It also works for a tunnel book you can see in the blog post here.

(p. 66) Sewn & Tied Binding.
Tools: scissors, ruler; glue brush and PVA or dry transfer adhesive; bone folder; needle
Materials: 6 pieces of heavyweight paper, 8 x 5" (20.3 x 12.7 cm), grained short; 6 pieces of 4-ply museum board, 3 7/8 x 5" (9.9 x 12.7 cm), grained long; colored waxed linen thread; natural linen thread; magazines for scrap paper; waxed paper
The addition of the boards make this a solid, chunky book, similar to Miniature Tied Stick Binding on pages 81-82.

(p. 70) Caption typo: paper bags

(p. 159) New background info for the Secret Belgian Binding. Rumors had it that Hedi Kyle invented it or found a historical model. Not! This structure was invented by Anne Goy, who presented it in the 1986, and she is Belgian. Apparently, she wanted to create a binding that looked like the Japanese stab binding but would open flat. Hedi learned it from a student and they named it "Secret Belgian Binding," but the following online source says that Anne calls it "Crisscross Binding." Also see blog post.

(p. 163) Woven Codex. Materials: 8 pieces of paper, 8 x 6 (20.3 x 15.2 cm)

(p. 177) Coptic with Accordion. In the far right column, five lines down under Materials: 3 pieces of heavyweight paper, each 3x10 inches. Centimeters should say: 7.6 x 25.4.… and not 7.6 x 24.5.

(p. 199-200) Stock Book. Materials: 12 glassine strips… three 2-ply boards, each 7 x 9 inches (17.8 x 22.6…) three 2-ply board spine strips, each 7 x 1…) 6 self-adhesive linen tapes, each 14 1/2… inches (36… cm)
