traditional bookbinding At Artisan Bindery

Bookbinding by hand is an ancient craft that has developed over centuries to what we see today in mass produced paperback and hard cover books.

The techniques for hand bound books have been perfected over the last few hundred years and for those looking to have something bound to last a lifetime, then artisan craftsmanship is the way forward.

If a New Binding is required for a personal project like a family history, a commemorative/remembrance book, visitors book, a collection of memoirs or any number of special occasions, Artisan Bindery can help.

Gifts like photograph albums, note & sketch books or the re-binding of a favourite novel can be done to the clients specifications.

I can also work closely with the client to create a suitable binding, a sympathetic Restoration or a personal, one of a kind and unique Design Binding each tailored to suit any and every budget.
