I like the old binding better!!!

Randy said...

Very creative! I do love the colors.

Woody said...

Looks like a bizarre, color-blind alien :-)

I *really* like the sketches in the second shot.

Kay L. Davies said...

Well, the newfangled one isn't to my taste, but the book in the second photo certainly is. It's gorgeous.

Do you really want to know?

The traditional ones are gorgeous, though. By now, you might have figured out that I have very conventional tastes.

T. Becque said...

It seems it would be difficult to read the book!

When did Daniel Korndorfer do his binding. I once lived next door to a girl who also did bookbinding. This is very interesting to me.

What is this weirdness??

ALAIN said...

Cela ne doit pas être très pratique à ranger dans sa bibliothéque !

Alain Alexandre said...

Original mais quoi pas!

Malyss said...

Comme Alain, faut une sacrée bibliothèque pour ranger un livre comme ça! On perd un peu de vue l'idée de reliure pour arriver a une oeuvre qui n'a qu'un rapport lointain avec un livre. Donc, je prefère rester dans le classique, et je prefère la seconde vue.

Cergie said...

Ce sont les livres qui sont importants et non les reliures. Cela me fait penser aux personnes qui achètent des bouquins au mètre et neles lisent pas. Les reliures permettent de préserver les livres. Actuellement au nom de la rentabilité on colle on ne relie plus.
Lorsque j'ai fait mon plôme j'ai emprunté un document sur la forêt d'Amance et malheureusement des chatons en s'ouvrant on brisé le vase ds lequel je les avais mis et ont abîmé le carnet. Un document important. Je l'ai fait relier de nouveau et couvrir avant de le rendre.

I am all for the classic, but the other one is quite funny.

Forest Dream Weaver said...

It's beautiful,the old have their own charm----but of course they too were once new.

brattcat said...

Ingenious but hard to shelve.

Diane said...

I like both the old and the new. xxx

SRQ said...

That's quite a colorful binding! It looks like a bizarre multi-tentacled device. I would need a lesson on how to use it! I'm fairly old school -- love the classic look.

Dreamer's Click said...

The new is pretty funny! I like both though..

Loree said...

The modern one is pretty wacky, I would say.

EG Wow said...

I definitely prefer the classic style. :)

Birdman said...

Fun would be operative word here.

Magpie said...

I have to say I definitely favor the second style of binding...the first looks like it might be difficult to read.

BaysideLife said...

The classic is more to my taste, but the Korndorfer binding certainly is ingenious. Like Brattcat, I think this would need it's own little niche on the shelves.

I love these stuffs!
Definitely my kind of place to visit!

Fun and creative and totally non-functional! :-D I like modernd AND classical. For me GOOD DESIGN must solve problem, and that means it works for the purpose intended in an aesthetically pleasing way.

Becky said...

Okay, wow. I see no point to that at all. The second one is beautiful, though. I love it.

Olivier said...

surprenante cette de reliure de Korndorfer, au moins cela change des reliures traditionnelles ;)) j'ai cherche sur Internet, mais j'ai rien trouve sur lui

paulboo said...

Fun to look at but I think not practical for reading on the crowded bus to work...!!
