Art of the Book
BeschreibungThe 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 book making as well as definitions of the
terminology. Organized in chapters Structure, Material,
and Technique, the pieces within have been handstitched,
bound in velvet, laser-cut, and silkscreened;
they were designed to be scratched, shaken, and torn,
or coveted, protected, and gently explored. They include
a 100-meter long leporello-folded photographer's monograph.
