I more or less always bind all my books as 'bindings built up on book', I like to have total control of the process and I think I get a stronger structure. But to day I made a case binding because the paper I used as cover is not so flexible. I was afraid that I had gone made working that paper around the spine.
The cover paper have hand lettering done by me with sumi ink. The quote is from Astrid Sampe - she was the head of NK:s textilkammare (Department of NK 1936-1971, Became the center of modern design and decor and was of great importance for the development of Swedish textile.) Astrid Sampe was a very smart lady with control/discipline of paper, textiles and employees. She said ' Ordning är frihet' - loosely translated ' If you have order you will have freedom'. My interpretation is a contradiction - my hand lettering have lots of freedom but no order.
