Selected texts from the symposium

This collection groups together written versions of lectures delivered on the occasion of the symposium organized  within the scope of the 5th International Design Bookbinding Forum.

This document is meant to emphasize this meeting by offering an opportunity to the public and to the lecturers of renewing their interest in the texts and allowing all those who were unable to attend to take cognizance of its content.

Within the context of this international meeting, the symposium offered precious moments of thought and exchanges, and invited various professionals implicated in the sector of book arts and design bookbinding to examine the different aspects of  bookbinding : teaching, creation, conservation and archival storage.
