"This exhibition was inspired by the celebrated binder Paul Bonet, who in 1964, designed an extraordinary binding for a copy of La Prose. My brilliant idea to ask my underwriters (and others) to commission fine bindings for a traveling exhibit was supported enthusiastically by Simon Eccles and Toby Schwartzburg, who are the co-curators of this exhibit "--Introduction, page 7.
