Since 1983 we have offered a full range of hand bookbinding and restoration services of extraordinary quality including repair and rebinding of antiquarian books as well as those of family or personal significance, such as Bibles and books of children’s stories; design bindings that creatively interpret the contents; clamshell and drop spine boxes, slipcases, portfolios and other protective enclosures for books and other objects; and short-run edition binding for artists and small presses.
We work with cloth, paper, leather, vellum and gold leaf. All materials are chosen for durability, longevity and aesthetic quality.
Our clients include books dealers and collectors, families preserving their heritage for future generations, and institutions. Many have used our hand bookbinding services for year after year, or now, decade after decade. While many are in New York, New England and other parts of the northeast, our clients come from across the country and as far away as Europe and Australia. We are located in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.
Please look within our site and discover what we may be able to do for you. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to discuss any hand bookbinding project you may have in mind. We look forward to working with you.
We will once again be exhibiting at the New York City Book and Ephemera Fair, Friday, March 10, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (note the new date and time!), at Wallace Hall, Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, 980 Park Ave. (at 83rd St.), New York City. In addition to examples of our work, we will also have some of our hand-marbled paper for sale. Stop by our booth on the day of the fair with your books needing binding, repair or restoration for free consultation and special offers. We look forward to meeting you on one of our rare excursions to New York City!
