During this time Kinder produced a great number of outstanding bindings which Elbert Hubbard described as unsurpassed; includes 14 color illustrations of bindings created by Kinder. In 1901, Kinder began publication of a small magazine consisting of practical information for fellow-binders. Wolfe and McKenna's account is based on letters and unpublished material that sheds light on Kinder, Hubbard, and the role of Roycroft in the production of fine bindings.
