Book Binding Design

The project was to design a new way of book binding for the holy Quran using unconventional material. We chose the live-hinge property of polypropylene to create the body shell to get maximum flexibility and opening angle for the book cover. Various finishes were explored using special coating pigments which gave the desired velvet feel, wood grains texture and translucent 'jaali' effect.
