Book Repairs and Rebinding
We provide book repairs, rebinding and conversions from soft to hard covers. Projects range from cherished childhood books, poetry, unique cookbooks, crossword dictionaries, favourite novels, out of print books, paperback to hard cover, slide cases, wrap-around portfolios, and more. Every book is unique.
The extent of repair and rebinding needed depends on the style and condition of your book. Much can be done to restore a favourite volume to a strong and reliable condition. Our objective is to return the book as closely as possible to its original form to secure the structure with the least invasive methods possible. Cloth or Leather finishing available. Bespoke slip cases and archival boxes made to order. CONTACT the studio for a specific quote for your rebinding or repair.

Digital Image Repair and Repro Dust Jackets
Digital Repair can bring your historic first edition back to life. Our digital repairs and repro dust jackets are printed in high resolution onto fine art quality papers using light-fast archival inks for years of enjoyment.
Original dust jacket artwork printed onto non-archival paper has yellowed, become brittle and fallen to pieces. We research the original artwork and use mapping techniques to render new repro dust jackets to accompany your newly rebound historical volume.
