Rong - Redesign of Leporello

February 11, 2017

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.

 

融-经折装的再设计

 

我们的全新设计项目  融-经折装的再设计 。经折装是一种中国古老的书装结构,多用于佛教经文的排版。由于其制作过程依赖大量的手工,所以不适合大批量生产。另外,经折装里面折页缺乏保护,很容易发生页面脱落的现象,因此经折装不再是现代书装结构的首选。但经折装的优点是自身修长的结构很适合双语和多页面相结合的排版。

我们选用这种古老的书装结构作为载体,并利用现代的加工工艺与材料,例如,用激光切割技术切割3mm厚的密度纤维板,可快速地将其切割成很纤细的造型,并在封面进行雕刻,因此可节省一定程度的手工制作。
