CORES Symposium: 'A multi-faceted look at limp bindings'

Friday 17 June 2016 (Theaterzaal Biekorf, Sint-Jakobsstraat 8, 8000 Brugge)


How to keep quires together in an envelope or binding? The question sounds simple; whereas the answer is not.
This symposium does justice to the fascinating world of simple bindings. The different perspectives that are covered are: terminology, techniques and structures in bindings, conservation and restoration, history, contemporary binding creations.
International experts give lectures, restorers share their experiences on specific restorations, and archives and libraries in Bruges show their bindings in house.

With this symposium, CORES Brugge aims to create a biennial platform for knowledge exchange among restorers of books and archives, in close collaboration with collection managers and experts in paper heritage.
