Art of the Book: Structure, Material and Technique

Art of the Book: Structure, Material and Technique
Library Shelf Location 19g.BAIL
Publication Date 2015

The book is dead; long live the book! Despite critics’ claims that technology has dealt a death-blow to this centuries old art form, Art of the Book proves that the bound book is indeed alive and well. A comprehensive guide to printed volumes, this title not only features finished projects, but also profiles the techniques and materials of bookmaking as well as definitions of the terminology. Organized into chapters on structure, material, and technique, the pieces within have been hand stitched, bound in velvet, laser-cut, and silkscreened. They were designed to be scratched, shaken, and torn, or coveted, protected, and gently explored. With its combination of spectacular projects and well-explained technical knowledge, Art of the Book will fascinate and inspire designers, visual artists, and anyone who considers themselves a bibliophile.
