8vo, 94p. Some 130 coloured photographic plates of bookbindings and references. Text in French. Green wrapper, lettered in white to front and spine.

Gonet, born in 1950 in Beziers created his own style of modern design – often using wood, plastic and other less conventional materials combined with exposed sewing structures. A near fine copy, with just slight rubbing to edges of the wrapper. Quite scarce.
