Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907), reproduced here, is an example of the Viennese “Jugendstil” style. With the subject’s face emerging from the background like a dream, the portrait is hauntingly beautiful. Seized by the Nazis in the 1940s, the painting was recovered and is now on display in New York.
SMYTH SEWN BINDING
We take the durability of our products seriously and bind all our books using the sturdy yet incredibly flexible Smyth sewn technique. In the classic art of bookmaking, the sewing together of signatures (paper folded into groups of eight, sixteen or thirty-two pages) is seen as the heart of a well-made book, and we have followed this tradition in creating Paperblanks books.
