To Lorraine Choquet, bookbinding does not merely represent the execution of perfect technique for purely functional purposes, but a sensual encounter with the book itself. She provides a book with a body of that is either supple or rigid, and an outer skin that can be thick or thin, smooth or textured.
Bookbinding expresses an ongoing search, since it preserves from the vicissitudes of time; it serves as a unifying force, since it blends the word with colour and form, materialyzing its essence.
Lorraine Choquet’s work invites to an intimate encounter, and expresses both her refusal to utilitarism triumph over beauty, and her need for perfection and transcendance.
