Bookbinding




Our bookbinding department is an incredibly busy section of the workshop dealing with a huge range of different projects at any given time. At Barnard & Westwood, we are committed to supporting and training the next generation of craftspeople and we now have 2 new bookbinding apprentices being mentored in this traditional, highly-skilled craft form.

Our bookbinding team offer a variety of different services including:

  • Hand-Bound & Case-Bound Books – Using a large range of book covering materials from vibrant linen cloths to finest quality leathers
  • Thesis/Dissertation Binding
  • Custom-made Presentation Boxes
  • Book Restoration
  • Photobooks – In a variety of different binding forms including lay-flat bookbinding
  • Archiving & Magazine Bindings – Combining issues into large, hand bound volumes
  • Restaurant & Hotel Stationery – Menu covers, bespoke welcome packs, Visitor books
  • Bespoke Projects (You name it, we’ve probably made it!)

We also specialise in a unique selection of artisanal binding styles and finishing techniques including traditional hand-tooled gold leaf detailing and ink speckled page edge finishing.

We pride ourselves on sourcing only the finest materials & leathers, all of which are sourced responsibly from reliable suppliers.

Our bindery is primarily set up for small to medium-sized runs depending on the project in question.

Our clients for bookbinding work come from a huge array of different industries to include local authorities, magazine & newspaper companies, fashion houses, high-end restaurants & individuals.
