Dos-à-dos Bookbinding: A workshop with Percy So

A: Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to combine two books? 

B: Maybe it’s possible but I haven’t seen one before. I’d like to know why you would want to stick them together. Books are like individuals, there must be a reason of combining two.

A: Well individuals also come together to form partnerships so maybe when two books are combined together they create something new and beautiful.

In this workshop, Percy So will teach you how to make Dos-à-dos binding, a structure in where two different books are bound together to create one unique binding.
