Rebecca Koch
Landenberg, Pennsylvania

Originally from Pennsylvania, my background is in art conservation as well as history. My interest in bookbinding stemmed from working in libraries and conservation labs, which eventually lead me to the North Bennet Street School. My interests lie in conservation and repair, although I also enjoy binding and designing new books. I endeavor to express my ideas through pairing colors and textures side-by-side with design.

Hiroshima, 2012

Hiroshima is the real life account of six individuals who survived the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. This binding is meant to represent the devastation, as well as the recovery and rebirth of Japan after this horrific event. Feathered onlays move from dark and chaotic on the rear cover, to light and hopeful on the front. The mountains represent the Chugoku mountain range near Hiroshima. The inspiration of this design comes from a quote found in the book: "When they came to know the war was over ... Japan started her new way."

Dimensions: 7.25 x 5 x .5 inches; 18.5 x 12.5 x 1.5 centimeters

Buffalo leather over shaped boards with feathered onlays of goatskin and buffalo leather. Cave paper flyleaves.
