This is the first project I am going to embark on, in this new year (we just celebrated the chinese new year, so it’s a new year for us all over again). Rebinding this brilliant book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The artwork is by Yayoi Kusama and it is a pity that the binding does not live up to the standards. The front end paper is sticking out of the cover, not too sure if this is due to bad workmanship or because the paper expanded in our humidity, but I guess it should not be the latter as the glue has already set. Bound in Italy by Graphicom Srl. Sadly, there was no quality checks before the books were sent out.
And yes, I paid a hefty $50 for the book, just to rebind it. Happy New Year, everyone!
Work in progress pictures to come.
