Tutorial: Onion binding
Learn the complex sequence of scores, folds and gluings involved in the amazing onion skin binding, a structure that grows from the inside to the outside, gradually incorporating the single sheets into a continuous stub.
After an introduction, an overview and a list of material and equipment, the tutorial describes every single step of the construction, with few words and many large full-colour images. The 36 page tutorial is inkjet printed onto Munken Lynx, in three languages (French, English and German), is hand bound by us at Elbel Libro in Amsterdam and signed by the inventor of the technique, Benjamin Elbel.
