Born in Spain, Carmencho lives and works in Italy since 1964.
Her international training both in bookbinding and book conservation has led her to flexible and non intrusive binding structures.
She has devised "the Crossed Structure Binding" (1992), the "Label Binding" (1998), the "Untouchables" (2001), and the "Dromography" (2003). Her works have been pubblised in many languages.
She is one of the founding members of the International Association "AIR neuf" in Paris (1994) and of the International Association "Professione Libro", in Milan (2005), for the promotion and exchange of ideas about the book arts.
