Recently, I was going through my notebooks from a few years back, from the time I spent two weeks with Enrico Giannini in Florence learning about bookbinding, when I came across a quotation by him. He was trimming the inside edges of the book cloth, making them even on all sides, despite the fact that they would be covered by the end papers.

“It doesn’t matter, you won’t see it, but I want to win.”

I want to win too.
