ART OF THE BOOK. {Cover title: Art of the Book: Structure, Materials, Technique.} Gingko Press Inc., Berkeley, 2015. Published in association with SendPoints Publishing Co., Limited, Hong Kong. 256 pp. with 662 ills. (564 col.) and one tipped-in, 14-page booklet with 53 reference ills. 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781584235897 In English.
Exposed-spine binding. Publisher's description: The book is dead; long live the book! Despite critics claims that technology has dealt a death-blow to this centuries old art form, Art of the Book proves that the bound book is indeed alive and well. A comprehensive guide to printed volumes, this title not only features finished projects, but also profiles the techniques and materials of bookmaking as well as definitions of the terminology. Organized into chapters on structure, material, and technique, the pieces within have been hand stitched, bound in velvet, laser-cut, and silkscreened. They were designed to be scratched, shaken, and torn, or coveted, protected, and gently explored. With its combination of spectacular projects and well-explained technical knowledge, Art of the Book will fascinate and inspire designers, visual artists, and anyone who considers themselves a bibliophile. Note: Although this book was originally announced by the publisher as Art in Book, Vol. 2, (ISBN 978-988-13834-3-3) and conceived as a companion volume to the publisher's 2011 publication Art in Book (Worldwide 152087), the title and ISBN were changed upon publication.
