A bonefolder is a flat piece of polished bone, horn or teflon, usually with one rounded end and one pointed end. This useful tool is used extensively in bookbinding, origami and other papercraft. It is great for folding, scoring, lifting edges and burnishing paper or leather. The photo above shows part of our bonefolder collection in Preservation Services.
The Bonefolder is an amazing, open-access e-journal that deals with bookbinding and bookarts. It is an incredible resource and anyone interested in the field should check it out.
Bonefolder is what we're calling our blog for now. If we think of something we like better we might change it. If you have any suggestions bring 'em on!
