Traditional Bindings, Untraditional Books: Japanese Manuscript Bindings and Boxes
2013 - Washington, D.C.
The Japanese tradition of binding departs from the Western tradition in many ways, including materials, methodology and functionality. These differences lend themselves to a fresh approach when used in modern artists' books. Traditional techniques for binding, sewing pattern variations, and wrap-around style box with bone clasps are demonstrated. Examples of using this tradition applied to modern artists' books are shown.
