[BKARTS] bradel à plats rapportés


Does anybody know a reference (book ou website) on the binding technique
called in French "bradel à plats rapportés" ?
I don't know how to translate it in English. Maybe "raised boards case
binding" ?
In this kind of binding, the spine is covered first with cloth or leather,
then the boards separately (with marbled paper for instance). The boards
are then pasted on the cloth or leather that covers the spine, or more
accurately on the extensions of the spine covering material.

Thank you

Best regards
