Antiquarian Restoration

We have been repairing old and damaged books for over 23 years, including commissioned work for museums and rare collections libraries. All our work is done by traditional means.

Design and fine binding

Leather and cloth re-backing or re-binding. Retaining as much of the original as possible and sympathetically matched repairs using top quality morocco, goat, calf, etc where needed. Design and fine binding to reflect the content and spirit of the book.
