'Our most prestigious works are leather bindings tooled in gold'


Our most prestigious works are leather bindings tooled in gold. The most popular leather is either goatskin of calf, with both avaliable in a wide range of colours.

Full bindings are books which are completely covered in leather. Half bound books have the spine and corners covered in leather, with front and back boards infilled with either cloth or marbled paper to match. Quarter bound books have a leather spine with cloth or paper sides.

Our leather bound books receive a good foundation, with sections hand sewn on cords or tapes. Edge gilding can be carried out prior to the book receiving silk, hand sewn, head and tail bands.

We frequently leather bind publishers' de-luxe Limited Editions in runs up to 1000 copies, and are often consulted in the selection of the materials used.

Sometimes, aspects of the job, such as specific hand marbling or calligraphy are commissioned to trusted artisans on our clients' behalf.

Exotic materials such as Alum Tawed leather, vellum, silks and hand cut velvets are imported when the need arises.
