The SlowBook

A SlowBook will be a book whose structure affords and allows only slow turning of pages, so that each opening spread is savoured and reflected on.
An engagement of the senses in the book: not only the “flutter of wind” from the page, but the engagement of senses in the hand and arm that dwells on turning the page.
So for a bookbinder, the question is, what’s the mechanism? how stiff are the pages, how constrained is the movement? Heath Robinson, steampunk?
