Fish skin binding Photo: István Borbás/National Library of Sweden Fish skin binding by Ingeborg Börjesson (1890-1976), born in Denmark, active in Paris between the wars and later active in Sweden. The lack of leather during the interwar years demanded new solutions. Bookbinders experimented with fish skin among other materials. This book was bound in angler fish skin during Börjesson’s Paris period in the 1930s. Ingeborg Börjesson is also known for her marbled paper.
