EXPOSED SPINE BINDINGS - LDE0518
Vicenza, 19 May 2018
Cristina Balbiano d'Aramengo

During this workshop we will be confronted with some variations of the sewing of a certain number of sections plus paper and cardboard covers.

We will make models with the sewing thread showing at the spine as a decorative element: thread links or kettle stitches woven right onto the multiple sections, so that the result will be an important graphic element in the bookbinding project.

These bindings are absolutely flexible due to the lack of adhesive at the spine. The absence of mechanical obstacles allows for a wide opening.

We will make small format models to have a series of samples that can be useful for future works; nevertheless these structures are also suitable to a great number of formats as well as the assemblage of a number of calligraphic works, photography and heavy volumes.

This workshop is meant for those who have already some practical knowledge of sewing.
