Hand binding

 

Do you have a damaged antiquarian volume that needs structural repair or or to be rebound it from scratch? I will work with your book in a way that is sympathetic to its original form, structure, materials, and purpose while ensuring its continued use and longevity.

Is your project the creation of a edition or the binding of a new text, album, or journal? Here the challenge is to draw---and innovate---on centuries of proven binding techniques in order to identify the materials, structure, and design that best suit your book's content and your intentions for its use.

Hand binding in the twenty-first century looks simultaneously forward and back. As a binder I am respectful of the craft's rich past, considerate of each book's present purpose, and deeply aware of the long future into which it must survive.
