Book laboratory at Stockmans: experimentering with textile covers

At Stockmans book laboratory we experiment with different techniques and work with samples to ensure the quality and originality of the end product.

An important element in this process is the discussion about the book cover. As an experiment for one of our recent projects we had two sample covers made with fabrics that were brought in by the artist.

In order to best advise our client about the possibilities of textile covers, Stockmans visited the expert book binder, armed with fabrics we received from the client. This enabled us to discuss the samples in person and contribute to the discussion about quality and help find solutions. Through these personal meetings we can ensure tailormade advise. A few days later we already received two sample covers that the client can use to visualise his concept.
