Om bokbindarnas bruk av träspån

Strömquist, Helena LU (1999) In Ark December 1999. p.10-22
Abstract
In Sweden the use of wooden boards and sca’boards as binding material was custom until the middle of the 19th century. Sca’boards are found in all kinds of more or less expensive bindings with different covering materials; silk, parchment, leather and paper. During the 19th century they were mainly used in simple and cheap retail bindings destined for the peasantry. In this article the reasons for the use of wood instead of paper as a binding material is analysed and explained as part of the material, technical and economical conditions of the bookbinding trade in Sweden. Examples of sca’board bindings are given.
