History of bookbinding techniques: Part V (out of VI): Renaissance
    and later (1500-1800)
centro del bel libro ascona
2-6 June 2008

The Renaissance binding technique is strongly influenced by
cultural, economical and geographical developments. The early
Renaissance wood cover binding is a decorative refinement of the
Gothic technique. The invention of the printing process asked for
faster production and lighter materials. Time-saving binding
techniques using cardboard were developed during this period. The
course is composed of lectures with double slide projection based on
the research of Prof. Janos A. Szirmai and hands-on practical work.
Each participant will do one or two sample-bindings.
