The Hexspoor bookbinder collection consists of 20 booklets of which each single book shows a different softcover-finishingtechnique. The first pages specify the finishing technique; the limitations and possibilities and the advantages and disadvantages. A poster in booklet 0 gives a good overview with quick one-liners about the possibilities. The binder collection is a complete tool for any designer, publisher, purchaser and printer.
Select your finest ingredients and cook your own best book, choose your best paper, your desired flatness and determine it’s thickness. Then discover this collection and select your tastiest binding technique.
Paper is a special medium. In an unpredictable world where expressions fight for attention, paper remains as a stable carrier of word and image. You can print on it, it can be folded and shaped according to the intention of the maker. Beautiful paper has no limitations! The range of the Fedrigoni paper collections is so wide that anyone can accomplish their needs. Fedrigoni is specialised in fine papers for printing, publishing, binding, packaging and stationery. Fedrigoni produces 22 different collections, available in 100 series and 300 colors. Even for the the most advanced or experimental printing Fedrigoni has the correct paper type in their house. Inspiration has no limits, only sources. Fleur Zee will talk about it.
