RINASCIMENTO

Lo stile rinascimento nella legatura d’arte viene chiamato

“GROLIER” dal nome del celebre bibliofilo appassionato

Jean Grolier de Servières, viscount d’Aguisy (1489/90 – 1565),

detto anche “ALDINO” dal nome del suo tipografo di fiducia

Aldo Manuzio (1449 circa – 1515),

a5a8

Caratterizzato dal disegno “azzurrato”, tratteggi orizzontali

all’interno dei piccoli ferri, alleggerendo la composizione decorativa

e rendendo la legatura elegante.

UNEXPECTED SURPRISE

g1

A few months ago, an apparently European gentleman called me in Via Santo Spirito,

telling in fluent Japanese that he saw me on Japanese TV and his wife was

profoundly impressed by my work of book conservation.

At the end of our conversation he gave me his business card.

I came to know that he is the International Fashion Director of VOGUE JAPAN and GQ JAPAN.

A few days ago, in a gray and rainy day, we received a small package from him

containing GQ magazine on which he writes articles about art and culture.

This unexpected surprise was like a ray of spring sunlight. mk
