Binding is about giving body to the book.
This is the project: to purchase second-hand books to give them a second chance, a better chance. Rather collections of tales, or single tales. Beautiful illustrations, meticulous typography, well-designed layout... who knows what appeal will make me fall for it?
I peel them, uncover them, dissect them, expose them.
Then I repair them, sew them up, cover them up, repeel them. I give them a nice canvas and paper cover. And what papers! Beautiful luminous motifs, sometimes pieces by marble craftsmen. A gilding on the back for the title.
