BookBinding Workshop : Reliure a la japonais

My 2-day masterclass by Boyoung Lee of 예술제본 _ Reliure d'Art 흘리위르공간. 1st day at The Art House and 2nd day at National Design Centre.  What I learnt this time is the Reliure a la japonais,   an interesting French interpretation of Japanese stab binding technique. Instead of exposing the stitching, the binding is neatly encased with covers exquisitely wrapped with calligraphy mounting cloth.

In the progress ....... (from Left to Right, Top to Bottom)
Stitched each section of 2 folios together with a pc of Tyvek® , 
pasted the Tyvek® together with a slip of cardboard in between, 
wrapped the book block with cloth, 
making of the hardbound cover

The Calligraphy Cloths are gorgeous.  They are brought from France by our instructor
