RONG - REDESIGN OF LEPORELLO
融 — 经折装的再设计

Leporello is an ancient binding structure for books, in China mostly used in the typesetting of the sacred scripture of the Buddhists. Due to the voluminous manual work involved in production, it is not for mass production. The folding pages are additionally easy to fall off without sufficient protection. Leporello is therefore no longer the best choice for modern bookbinding. The virtue of leporello, however, lies in its slender form that is perfect for the typesetting of bilingual texts in multiple pages. 

       经折装是一种中国古老的书装结构,多用于佛教经文的排版。由于其制作过程依赖大量的手工,所以不适合大批量生产。另外,经折装里面折页缺乏保护,很容易发生页面脱落的现象,因此经折装不再是现代书装结构的首选。但经折装的优点是自身修长的结构很适合双语和多页面相结合的排版。本书是以设计师的视角对“融”和“品物流形”的发展历程进行介绍与分析。我们选用这种古老的书装结构作为载体,并利用现代的加工工艺与材料。

A red elastic cord is applied to not only prevent the pages from falling in reading but to provide better protection when the pages are unfolded. As long as the cord is fastened into the groove joint of the cover, the book will hold still. The cord can also serve as a bookmark, adding more practical flavor into this traditional book form. The design is a resuscitation of the ancient leporello with modern thinking, presenting the readers with a fresh reading journey on an old-fashioned road.

       通过一条红色松紧绳可以避免折页在阅读过程中掉落,也可以在展开多个页面时更好地保护页面。当红色松紧绳卡到封面的凹槽中就会将整本书固定住,使书不会发生扭动,可以更好的保护书籍。另外,红色松紧绳也可当作书签来使用,使经折装的实用功能大大增强。这个作品是通过现代设计思维对经折装进行再设计,读者会对于这一传统书装结构拥有全新的阅读体验。

TYPOGRAPHIC DESIGN 排版设计
PROCESSING 工艺

the laser technique is used to cut and engrave the cover which is made of high-density fiberboards, saving considerable time for manual production. 

       用激光切割技术切割3mm厚的密度纤维板,可快速地将其切割成很纤细的造型,并在封面进行雕刻,因此可节省一定程度的手工制作。
