Bookbinders Holly Serjeant (BA Hons Bookbinding) and Janet Hopley have many years of bookbinding experience.
Old books, in whatever state, can be restored to their former glory, re-using as much of the original binding as possible. Alternatively we can make new covers to suit the style and age of the book.
Bespoke handmade books, wedding albums, menu covers, slipcases and drop back boxes can be made to order. We can bind your poetry / photos /magazines/ project / thesis in your choice of materials, size and colour. Handmade books, bookplates, cards and 'Make Your Own' Book Kits are on sale in the shop.
We are happy to give estimates for binding work, offer advice on techniques, and recommend suppliers of bookbinding equipment and materials.
To discuss your requirements in detail, please call in to see us or telephone to talk to Holly or Janet on 01298 73100 as we old-fashioned binders don't work by email!
If you are not local to us, you can post us your binding work.
Holly runs bookbinding workshops several times a year. If you are interested in learning how to make a hardback notebook using traditional methods and materials please call in or phone for more information.
