The question has been raised--what is this Ikegami we talk about? In
English it is _Japanese Bookbinding: Instructions from a Master Craftsman_
by Kojiro Ikegami, adapted by Barbara B. Stephan. N.Y.: Weatherhill, 1986.
This book includes many traditional Japanese formats in addition to the stab
sewn/side sewn format that has been in the list recently. The other binding
types are interesting for themselves and as a starting point for creativity.
