These two bindings use elements of the Fukurotoji but are assembled in a different manner. The Orihon’s pages are assembled in a concertina format, giving the book a flutter action. The Yamato construction uses paper ribbons to hold assembled book. 

Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding with CBBAG under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza and Rose Newlove. With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures. Please visit Stuart’s website: www.georgehillco.com
