Boyoung Lee received her Bookbinding and Gilding Certificate d’Aptitude Professionnelle, conferred by the French Ministry of Culture and Education, in 2009. She now runs her own bookbinding studio in Insadong, helping budding book enthusiasts learn to exquisitely bind a scrapbook with mounting cloth.
The perfect gift for any bookworm, a bookbinding class at the Atelier Reliure d’Art promises a truly relaxing experience, as attendees are guided by Boyoung through a technique known as ‘Reliure á la Japonais,’ which sees traditional French bookbinding methods paired with a Japanese ‘stab’ bookbinding technique, and executed with Korean calligraphy silk cloth.
You can even take and bind your own scrap or photo book, for the ultimate in book-themed romance. For all inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org
