Pianel (coursecode: PI-01-21)

Friday 25 t/m Sunday 27 March 2022

The Pianel is a bookbinding structure that uses the piano hinge as a main structural and visual feature.
Pianel® has a vey reduced outlook with all the unsightly elements of the piano hinge tucked away in a neat, nifty construction, leaving only two clean vertical lines on the outside separating the spine and boards.
Shiny dots of polished brass rods complete the head and tail.
The process behind the result looks simple but requires a lot of precision and planning.
A highly rewarding project taught in our bindery.
