Hand binding is one of my hobby and interest. I love to use scratch paper or recycling paper to make books
and notebooks. At the end of a project, I like to fold and bind together sketches and printing proofs to reassemble
contents in new random ways. Not designed spreads are sometimes surprisingly interesting.
New relations come out from these unpredictable combinations. Order and orientation of content lose their
original sense to trigger new pure aesthetic interpretations.
