Ten days before the presentation of The Encyclopedia of migrants in Rennes, I went to the binding workshop : the Maison Vitoz based in Bédée (Brittany, France) to note the work in progress. The books are now binded, it remains to finish the cover with the natural leather. We discussed about the pattern that would come to patch the skins, like the old encyclopaedias. The next step will be to definitely choose the composition of the text that will appear on the back of the books.
Here are some photographs taken in the calm and concentrated atmosphere of this workshop, on a Monday morning in February.
