tl Fore-edge Painting: Frost

Quality Bookbinding


In addition to the usual range of antiquarian volumes, a new bookbinding service is now available. Using traditional methods and materials it can offer presentation-quality handcrafted leather bindings. To enable fore-edge painting on otherwise unsuitable books, a  page edge-gilding service is also available. 

For the valuable or 'special' gift item, a range of drop-down solander boxes and protective thumb-hole slipcases and presentation labels can be also be ordered.








Presentation Bookbinding

DO you have a treasured book that means something very special to you?
not have it bound in luxurious gold-tooled leather. There is a timeless quality of the look and feel of a fine, handcrafted leather bound book.
It is pleasing to touch, durable, looks wonderfully elegant and makes a specially perfect Presentation gift. Choose from full to part leather, with gold tooling and gilded page-edges. Hand-marbled endpapers, protective cases and personalised presentation labels are available and also a repair service for ‘poorly’ books too.
