About Edgard Claes
Edgar Claes, born in Belgium, is one of the most prominent bookbinders in the world. Educated as a classical hand bookbinder, he soon started looking for contemporary forms and materials. Since 1990 he has been making his bookbindings mainly from polycarbonate, which he processes with a computer-controlled milling machine and colors with airbrush.
He is also an accomplished painter, sculptor, stained glass maker. He lives and works in the monastery of Sint-Agatha in the Netherlands.
