Szirmai – Archaeology of medieval Bookbinding
Routledge 2016
Paperback  368 blz.  € 45.00*

In the past, studies of the history of bookbinding were mainly concerned with the exterior decoration. This book focuses attention primarily on the physical aspects of the binding and its construction principles. It is an expanded version of a series of lectures delivered by the author while Visiting Professor at the University of Amsterdam in 1987, supplemented with the results of ten years of intensive research in major libraries on the Continent, the United Kingdom and the USA. It surveys the evolution of binding structures from the introduction of the codex two thousand years ago to the close of the Middle Ages. Part I reviews the scanty physical evidence from the Mediterranean heritage, the early Coptic, Islamic and Ethiopian binding structures and their interrelation with those of the Byzantine realm. Part II is devoted to a detailed analysis of Western binding techniques, distinguishing the carolingian, romanesque and gothic wooden-board bindings as the main typological entities; their structure and function is compared with those of contemporary limp bindings. The book is illustrated with over 200 drawings and photographs and contains a comprehensive bibliography.

Parmi les domaines de prédilection de DOMINIQUE EHRHARD, le design. C’est dans le même esprit que Paris Pop up qu’il a reproduit 10 chaises ou sièges célèbres.

Des modèles de papier miniaturisés, des mécanismes ingénieux d’une précision renversante font de ce livre une véritable prouesse technique, un livre animé raffiné et élégant à l’image des oeuvres qu’il contient. A la fin de l’ouvrage, une biographie de chacun des créateurs.
Avec ce livre, pour une somme très modique et dans un tout petit volume, vous aurez enfin chez vous : La Berceuse n°10 de Michael Thoney, la Chaise haute Hill House de Charles Rennie Mackintosh, le Fauteuil LC2 de Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret et Charlotte Perriand, et bien d’autres encore… Un véritable musée de poche !

Fabienne Verdier : Soundscapes, The Julliard Experiment Exhibition Catalogue-Texts by Bernard Foccroulle and Marc Collet  -Patrick Derom Gallery –2016 -  
gebonden -112 blz. € 32.50
As a visual artist with a strong musical sensibility, Verdier was delighted to accept the Juilliard School’s invitation to work during the fall semester of 2014 with noted musicians on a pioneering creative program, alongside pianist Philip Lasser, soprano Edith Wiens, conductor William Christie, cellist Darrett Adkins and jazz musicians Kenny Barron and Ray Drummond. Transported by sound, Fabienne Verdier allowed music to suffuse her work, dictating her strokes to create paintings at the frontier between the visual arts and performance.  
​The experiment engendered an authentic dialogue between music and painting – disparate yet closely connected expressive forms. The challenge was to find a shared language, and common sources of inspiration.



Hokusai Pop-ups includes 6 pop-ups  Courtney Watson McCarthy- Thames & Hudson 2016  € 25.00

A one-of-a-kind book of pop-ups based on the works of the Japanese artist Hokusai
Hokusai (1760–1849) was an extraordinarily prolific Japanese master artist and printmaker of the ukiyo-e (‘pictures of the floating world’) genre. More than 150 years after his death, his legacy remains as important as any Western painter’s.
Hokusai’s work inspired a roll-call of great artists including Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Manet, Degas and Klimt as well as craftsmen and architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright. This book features six meticulously crafted pop-ups of some of his most famous works: The Great Wave; Chrysanthemums and Horsefly; The Poem of Ariwara no Narihira or Autumn Leaves; Kirituri Waterfall; Phoenix; and A Sudden Gust of Wind.
Courtney Watson McCarthy is a noted paper engineer, and the author of several other pop-up books published by Thames & Hudson.

Sheila Waters - Waters Rising: Letters from Florence : Peter Waters and Book Conservation at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze after the 1966 Flood
Legacy Press 2016 gebonden + DVD 496 blz. € 45.00
In Waters Rising: Letters from Florence, renowned calligrapher Sheila Waters recounts the story of the role that her husband Peter Waters (1930–2003) played as the person in charge of organizing the monumental efforts to save severely damaged books in the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze (National Library, Florence) after the devastating flood in 1966 fifty years ago. To give the most complete picture of the events that occurred initially in the recovery mission, Sheila presents nearly 50 of Peter’s letters written between the end of November 1966 and April 1967, in which he describes day-to-day happenings, and her letters back, which kept him informed about things at home and boosted his confidence when problems seemed to be overwhelming. In addition to these letters and Sheila’s narrative diary and timeline of events, Randy Silverman, Head of Preservation, University of Utah, has written a thought-provoking introduction that puts those conservation efforts into the context of today’s practices. Also, Valerii P. Leonov has written an appreciation of Peter’s assistance in the aftermath of a fire in 1988 that ravaged the Library of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The accompanying DVD features a digital remastering of Roger Hill’s film Restoration of Books, Florence, 1968.Waters Rising is dedicated to the people whose names appear herein and to those unnamed Mud Angels who salvaged the books that the flood waters left behind. 




William Goldsmith – The Bind – Stripboek – Jonathan Cape 2015 Gebonden 120 blz.
 € 28.50
The Bind charts the rise and fall of Egret Bindings, once the most prestigious firm of bookbinders in London.
In 1910 brothers Guy and Victor Egret take on an ambitious commission: a deluxe, jewelled binding of a collection of poems, A Moonless Land. It proves to be a moment of hubris. The work triggers their ruin, watched by the disapproving spirit of their father, Garrison Egret. A darkly humorous tale of sibling rivalry and creative one-upmanship, The Bind shows once again that William Goldsmith is an incomparable storyteller and a marvellously inventive artist.

Marí Emily Bohley -Schrift und Buchkunst Letter and Book Arts 2002-2015 Paperback 84 pages  With an introduction by Ewan Clayton  € 15.00
Ewan Clayton in his introduction :  One reason I feel drawn to the work is because it is full of human care. The driftwood, torn paper, discarded books have been gathered up, and a place is found for them in a new order, a context they did not perhaps expect to find. Chinese calligraphy sits next to handwritten documents in German. Gold leaf meets walnut ink, the form of a young child presses through paper pulp, sections of paper are stitched together, sheltered within wooden covers. That is what is fascinating, these are assembled fragments, they are in conversation, there is no longer any isolation.

Ralph Hyde - Paper Peepshows : The Jacqueline & Jonathan Gestetner Collection- Antique Collectors' Club- 2015 gebonden 272 blz.  € 57.50
Peepshows were introduced in the mid-eighteenth century by Martin Engelbrecht in Augsburg. They called for a long wooden cabinet designed for purpose incorporating a viewing lens and sometimes a mirror. In the 1820s peepshows made entirely of paper appeared on the scene more or less at the same moment in Vienna, London and Paris. The clumsy cabinet was no longer called for. The new peepshow was equipped with paper bellows so it could be expanded or contracted in a trice. Paper peepshows were light; they were comparatively cheap. They fitted neatly into the pocket. Viewing a Paper Peepshow is an intimate, individual experience that, in the age of television and hand-held computers, gives a real sense of personal discovery. The viewer engages by peeping through a tiny hole and thereby discovers inside layers of images, like a pocket-sized stage set. - This stunning book charts the history of these charming collectables. The illustrated catalogue section includes the following data where known: country of origin, publisher, date, method of printing (eg chromolithograph), shape and dimensions, and number of scenes. As well as a full description of each piece, the author gives fascinating historical and cultural context for these items - ranging from depictions of the July Revolution (Paris, 1830), or the opening of the Thames Tunnel to the nursery tale of 'Puss in Boots'.
