Restoration & Leatherwork


Leather is a living material - and like all of us, it eventually shows signs of advancing age. 

Leather book covers are remarkably resilient, often lasting for hundreds of years. Tooling, pressing and gilt, however, can all wear thin, while repeated handling leaves its mark on corners and spines. Our bookbinders are experts in all aspects of leatherwork, including hand-tooling and gilding, and can restore beauty and lustre to any leather item.
