Bristol university

A number of years ago we were asked by Bristol University to make a small run of bespoke screw post bindings. This binding method allowed them to easily change or add pages and we designed the book in such a way as to hide the screws from view.

shaun the sheep

We were approached by Aardman Animations to bind one of the scripts as a special gift to the production team. Bound in black book cloth and embossed with gold foil.

burohappold engineering

As part of a large engineering project Buro Happold undertook in Abu Dhabi, Bristol Bound was commissioned to bind all the project documents in both English and Arabic. Each volume was quarter bound in a different coloured cloth and the boards covered in high quality coated litho prints.

better together

For this project the customers supplied the printed cover and pages and we stab-bound the book for extra durability.
