Class Description: This structure appears as a progression of the Link structure for two or more volumes, leveraging its technical aspects in the service of decorative design.
The Link 1 Structure is a versatile binding technique that can be crafted using either leather or paper. It boasts the unique feature of seamlessly connecting the exterior cover design with that of the interior cover, achieved through intersecting cuts in two layers of material.
In this course, we will delve into the art of creating a flexible paper cover, exploring various paper qualities and elucidating diverse methods of combining materials and adhesives. This approach allows for the creation of an innovative design binding with a reversible connection to the book, blending elements of design and preservation seamlessly.
