The Book from Bangkok or Kintsugi Book.

We remember the Book from Bangkok ? As it dried out large cracks and stress points began to appear. At first I was a bit miffed but that is the way things go. As the cracks began to stabilise I looked on then not as a disaster more what we in the trade call "A design opportunity" 

Taking inspiration from cracked pavements and the art/craft of the repair of ceramics with lacquer and powdered gold - Kintsugi ( golden joinery ) some times also referred to as Kintsuuroi ( golden repair )

As a design opportunity I like. Keeping with this theme I will be making a stand for the work.
