J'aime les reliures sobres qui respectent leur contenu, qui créent une harmonie subtile entre le livre et sa reliure. Mes recherches techniques et esthétiques sont entremêlées : un impératif de conservation aboutit parfois à une solution décorative originale, ou bien l'apparence rêvée d'une reliure demande une technique que je dois inventer de toute pièces.

La pratique de la conservation, m'ont amené à utiliser des techniques basées sur quelques idées simples : ne rien couper du papier du livre, éviter de le plier, ne pas faire de mise en presse forte. Utiliser que des matériaux neutres et des colles réversibles en contact avec le livre.

11 de mes reliures en feuille de pierre sur des livres du XVème et début du XVIème, sont été exposées jusqu'à la fin du mois de mars dans l'espace "Abécédaire des collections" de la BnF, site François Mitterrand, Haut de jardin, Hall Est.

Programma 2012 Lori Sauer : Modified Sewn Board Binding 17&18 april and A Removable Case 19&20 oktober 2012

Handboekbinderij Wilgenkamp Blokker (Hoorn) NL

1) Modified Sewn-Bord Binding 17 &18 april 2012, 19&20 october 2012

Originally developed by conservator Gary Frost in the USA this is a versatile binding that uses very little adhesive and that is equally attractive in combinations of paper, cloth or leather covers. Lori Sauer has used it extensively on fine bindings, and has made various modifications to the attachment of the spine, including one with wood.

Programma 2012 Innovative album structures: Docent BENJAMIN ELBEL - MEMO see also master class on 16&17 december 2011

Bindery Wilgenkamp Binnenplaats 40 1695 jj Blokker (Hoorn) NL

This course by Benjamin Elbel will unveil two elegant and unconventional methods for binding a collection of paper documents of the same size (like postcards), without the need of gluing them, drilling them or using plastic sleeves or standard photo corners.
See :

One of them ,published in the' Festschrift for Hedi Kyle ' in 2009, almost magically holds postcards by pinching one of their edges into its pockets, while the other one takes advantage of a ingenious corner construction.
The workshop is also a good introduction to concertinas.

Master Class Dos Rapporté by Benjamin Elbel

Atelier Wilgenkamp Blokker (Hoorn) NL

The "Dos Rapporté" is a binding technique where back and boards are first treated separately before being put together. Benjamin Elbel developed a technique of his own which will attract all those who are interested in an elegant and contemporary method of bookbinding. Advanced bookbinding know-how and experience of leather processing are requested for this masterclass.

The class will be given in English but French or German wouldn't be a problem.

Duration : 2 days : 16 and 17 december 2011

Fee : 175,00 EURO, lunch and material included

LE FONDS MICHEL WITTOCK: de la passion au don.

Bibliotheca Wittockiana - 23 rue de Bemel 1150 Bruxelles

Michel Wittock has assembled a truly magnificent collection of bookbindings, from the riches of the Renaissance until recent artistic expressions. A standard collection! To valorize this ensemble he founded the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, a private museum that he developed into a study centre and museum of international acclaim
He wished and hoped that his collection and the research activities could be made permanent.
The King Baudoin Foundation enthusiastically wanted to join in the realization of this initiative.


Hotel d'Ansembourg, rue Féronstrée 114 Liège

The association for the development of artistic bookbinding – APPAR –
comes to greet the Ansembourg Museum in Liege.
This Museum was appropriate as it offers a complete panorama of all the arts and craftsmanship. More than a Museum of decorative arts this place representative of an epoch was more than ready to open up to other forms of art.

the most important aspect of this project is the dialogue that will be
