Encuadernaciones flexibles

Encuentro sobre "Encuadernaciones flexibles",

http://www.coressymposium.be/

A multi-faceted look at limp bindings

How to keep quires together in an envelope or binding? The question sounds simple whereas the answer is not. Over and over again, new methods were devised: simple and complex, flexible or tight, with leather, textile or parchment. Of course, complex book constructions and decorated treasure binding draw our attention. However, especially flexible bindings with simple structures are stacked massively in our archives and libraries. For centuries, these have been neglected. Only in the last couple of years, these have drawn the attention of collection managers, restorers and researchers. And that interest is rewarded. Those who work with simple bindings, discover rich and complex stories.

Program

This symposium does justice to the fascinating world of simple bindings. The different perspectives that are covered are: terminology, techniques and structures in bindings, conservation and restoration, history, contemporary binding creations. International experts give lectures, restorers share their experiences on specific restorations, and archives and libraries in Bruges show their bindings in house.

Purpose

With this symposium, CORES Brugge aims to create a biennial platform for knowledge exchange among restorers of books and archives, in close collaboration with collection managers and experts in paper heritage. CORES was founded as a competence platform for conservation and restoration of books and archives by Syntra West vzw and heritage institutions (archives and libraries) in Bruges.

Luis Crespo: Restauración de un Cantoral conforme a la estética Wabi Sabi

El Centro Nacional de Conservación y Restauración ha publicado el número 20 (2015) de la revista Conserva en Santiago de Chile.



Restauración de un Cantoral de los Reyes Católicos Conforme a la Estética Wabi Sabi

Les recomiendo leer el excelente artículo del colega Luis Crespo Arcá, de la Biblioteca Nacional de España, que expone un sugerente enfoque para abordar el análisis de las transformaciones ocurridas en un libro de coro del siglo XV, a partir de la estética japonesa denominada Wabi Sabi


Esta aproximación ha permitido a Crespo enfrentar los procesos de intervención de una manera particular y con la finalidad de mantener en el presente la "eficacia simbólica" (sensu Muñoz Viñas 2004) de este objeto litúrgico.



Restoration of a Cantoral (Choir Book) Belonging to the Catholic Monarchs, According to the Wabi Sabi Aesthetic.
