Tutorial launch 15 November 2020 - Pianel binding June 1, 2020 13:00
We are excited to announce the launch of our new tutorial, the Pianel binding, a bookbinding structure that uses the piano hinge as a main structural and visual feature.
Pianel® has a very reduced outlook with all the unsightly elements of the piano hinge tucked away in a neat, nifty construction, leaving only two clean vertical lines on the outside separating the spine and boards. Shiny dots of polished brass rods complete the head and tail.
The process behind the result is simple but requires a lot of precision and planning. A highly rewarding project packed with many tricks of the trade, which will appeal to both amateur and professional bookbinders.
