Book #49

Cartonnage

Today's book is an example of a book made using the cartonnage technique, where the stiff cover is created by pasting several layers of paper (or papyrus, as it would have been originally). This is a model that I made in a class with Gary Frost a few years ago.

I am really enjoying your posts. All these different kinds of bindings - who'd have imagined there could be so many (or that one bookbinder would take the time and trouble to make them all!).
I am impressed (and a little bit awed) by your wonderful examples. There are so many bindings that I now want to research!
Thank you for sharing your great books, Rhonda!
