Marie-Christine LAFONT, who after studying Modern Letters, went to teach in Africa and forged close and still-living links with this continent. Passionate of crafting since her childhood, she discovered in it a magnificent production of weaving, indigo dyed fabrics, basketry, pottery, small wax characters... Upon her return to France, she continued this African journey along with with Andrée DAVANTURE, founder of the association ATRIA, who created and post-produced almost all the francophone African cinema at the time. 


Always in search of craftings (handswork, search of materials, textures, colors), and in parallel to her job as a teacher, she started learning binding in Roger FAMEAU's workshop, improved her learning in fine binding with Solange De VERBIZIER, and then learnt the gilding (titling and decorations) with Eugène De VERBIZIER, Solange's father. All this lead her in 1996, the year when Mr. GOUPIL, binder, yielded her BOURGOGNE RELIURE, one of the oldest binding workshops in Paris.
