If you love books like i do there are two aspects that make a book special. First of all there is the design. The combination of Layout and typography making the book stand out from the rest of all other publications….and secondly there is the binding of the book. Here is an aspect in which Jean de Gonet shines. Gonet is considered worldwide as one of the true masters of book binding and this is the reason why there have been special exhibitions on his bookbindings all over Europe. Onme of the very best was at the Bibliotheca Wittockiana in Brussels in 1989. The exhibition showed over 120 special books by Gonet of which all have been published in the outstanding publications which published by the Bibliotheca Wittockiana. The Wittockiana publication is now available at www.ftn-books.com
