Students were very interested in this new binding structure so, with the assistance of my fellow binder. we set about working it out.
We had scant details to go on although we had a little communication with the developer. However, seven samples later. we feel we have a successful binding where the look and action is Dos Rapporte.
This example is a guest book where this style is very suitable as it opens flat like a spring back. Great for guests to write on every area of the pages.
More images later.
I am heading to the Canberra Bookbinders Guild to conduct a weekend workshop on this binding technique.
Hope it goes well.
