Happy New Year! Thank you to all my loyal blog readers who continue to stop by even when my posts are so few and scattered. Hoping for blog rejuvenation throughout 2015!
I have been wondering if I could possibly come up with 365 different book structures to share here this year. I do not have a plan and I am not sure that I can follow through on this idea, but I would like to try to post a picture every day of a different binding structure. So, 365 books that I have made using 365 different techniques. This will include books that I am currently making as well as books that I have made in the past.
So, to start off, this is an historic Japanese structure called the retchōsō binding that is unique to Japan. This particular example is made using Kozo paper handmade at The Morgan Conservatory. I made this book for their silent auction that was held a couple months ago.
