Exposición de encuadernaciones en pergamino flexible

Over the past thirty years, there has been an increased interest in historical bookbinding forms focused on the bare necessities of protection and structural cohesion, commonplace alternatives to the luxurious executions and aesthetic masterpieces that have often been the subjects of binding histories.
The current exhibit aims to illustrate some of these changing patterns in the use of the limp vellum binding while hopefully managing to convey its utilitarian logic, its often simple, understated aesthetic, and some of its little-appreciated allure, which has enticed binders for at least the past six hundred years.      - Douglas Rice
