Our new project is Rong - Redesign of Leporello , Leporello is an ancient binding structure for books, in China mostly used in the typesetting of the sacred scripture of the Buddhists. Due to the voluminous manual work involved in production, it is not for mass production. The folding pages are additionally easy to fall off without sufficient protection. Leporello is therefore no longer the best choice for modern bookbinding. The virtue of leporello, however, lies in its slender form that is perfect for the typesetting of bilingual texts in multiple pages.
Modern processing techniques and materials are employed in designing the book. For example, the laser technique is used to cut and engrave the cover which is made of high-density fiberboards, saving considerable time for manual production.
