Our first attempt at leather binding (with Gold Blocking) has come out rather well!

Traditional red cloth binding, with laser printing.

The end product of a repair job. A much loved book had been absolutely falling apart, with the cover very faded and stained.

We put new boards on top of the existing ones, with a window for the original title, calico tape on the inside hinges, matching covering, and finally some rather lovely marbling for the end papers.

They say there is always something new to learn about bookbinding, and that is what makes it such an interesting activity, you never know what challenges are just around the corner! We’ve been doing bookbinding now for about three years, and we now feel confident enough to advertise to the world that that is what we do.

Small repair work to hymn books and bibles is fairly straightforward, but when it comes to a full re-bind on an old and much - loved childhood treasure…..the pressure is on!  Such was the TITANIC book shown on the right, However we do plenty of binding on new books, such as dissertations, reports, essays and the like, and in the panel on the right we’ve listed some of the styles of binding we are able to do, starting with the cheapest, on to what sometimes prove to be quite expensive jobs!
