Self description: "The history of Chinese bookbinding has always suffered
owing to a lack of material evidence. [...] This site, by combining textual
descriptions with diagrams illustrating binding techniques and photographs
of the actual objects, aims to give a comprehensive introduction to the
different kinds of Chinese bookbinding contained in the Dunhuang collection
of the British Library."

Site contents: Some characteristics of the Dunhuang booklets; Butterfly
binding (hudie zhuang); Stitched binding (xian zhuang); The Chinese pothi
(fanjia zhuang); Whirlwind binding (xuanfeng zhuang); Concertina binding
(jingzhe zhuang); Wrapped-back binding (baobei zhuang); Bibliography.
