Japanese Bookbinding book. Kojiro Ikegami was a master bookbinder of Japanese hardbound books, a craft he learned from his father. He was a young man during the 1920s, when Japanese texts were copied by hand and the manually made books were works of art. His memories of youth in the Preface of this volume is a tribute to the love of bound paper. My father seemed at his happiest when he was binding books. Watching him go through the steps of the binding process is one of the most treasured memories of my childhood.

A third-generation traditional bookbinder gives easy-to-follow instructions for making all the major, historically important styles of Japanese bindings as well as traditional book cases—the custom-made folding boxes that afford handsome protection for Japan's exquisite books. The authoritative text, written by one of Japan's leading professional bookbinders, has been fully adapted for Western readers. Both American and Japanese suppliers of traditional tools and materials are provided and substitutes are recommended for items not readily available. For centuries the West has admired Japanese books, but only now can we make them ourselves and take full advantage of their creative possibilities. Stunning and practical, these bindings are ideal for preserving calligraphy, letters, artwork, and poems, for adding a distinctive touch to limited-edition books, and for use as diaries or gifts.

There is no better book on this topic in English, in fact there is really no other book on this topic. Although it is over 30 years old it contains, clear and detailed instructions, useful historical information and helpful photos. After many years of studying Japanese and consequently having access to a large number of books in Japanese on this topic my regard for this book has not diminished. Furthermore unlike western style bookbinding which often requires specialised equipment many of these beautiful books can be made at home with the tools any artist, or craftsman, already possesses.

A very nice book with a bit of history, as well as detailed instructions for making several types of Chinese and Japanese books; including flutter books, accordion books, and a few stab binding designs. Different types of paper, glue, and modern as well as traditional tools are also discussed.

I bought a second-hand book but it was still in good condition. The cover was slightly damaged from normal daily use. Besides that, the book was very useful for those who are interested in bookbinding. Especially for those who wants to book bind using a Japanese technique since it contains a list of tools and some form of alternative.

If you are a bookbinding lover, that' the book of your dreams.
It all starts with the book itself, beautiful binded under the green protective paper.
But this is not for the begginers, but the intermediate and advanced ones.
It has very clear instructions, filled with amazing photos, including book case variations.
Very japanese made and worth every penny.
  • Celace
Good descriptions and photographs those interesting in understanding how Japanese book structure differs from Western book bindings.
An excellent starting place for book binders who want to study and use Japanese binding techniques. Great for all skill levels.
