Paper is a delicate material, and has much to endure when it enters a bookbindery and is cut, folded, sewn, glued, knocked into shape, piled and packed.
Koto Bolofo records this process at three branches of the Offizin Andersen Nexö bindery, in Leipzig, Zwenkau and Tunisia-each of which has a different approach to binding.
Bolofo's photographs reveal the fascinating and fraught journey from paper to book.
