What We Do At Willow Bindery

BOOK REPAIRS  -  Book repairs are done in such a way as to retain as much of the original structure as possible while making sure that the completed repair is sturdy and will function for many years.

PAPER MENDING  -  Most well used books have damaged pages.  Paper conservation is part of the total repair process.  Paper tears are mended as invisibly as possible.  Paper washing and paper de-acidification are sometimes called for as well.

CUSTOM BINDINGS  -  Leather, cloth and decorative paper are all materials used to create new custom bindings.  Custom work can be ordered to cover an existing book or to bind a book using new pages.  Often, accumulated works of art, poetry or scholarly achievement are good candidates for a specially designed cover to give them a special home and to assure their safe storage for years to come. 

ALBUMS AND PORTFOLIOS  -  Albums can be designed to your specifications to mark special occasions.  For awards, the distinction of a leather bound portfolio is beyond compare. Custom designed, hand made items are one of a kind and add immeasurably when you recognize a special occasion.

DESIGN WORK  -  Whether the work is a custom designed book, a unique enclosure, book repair or paper repair, embellishments are important.  Leather tooling including gold tooling, leather on-lays and the ability to work with a variety of materials are a few of the skills needed for exceptional results.

For book repair, paper repair, a new custom binding, a portfolio cover, a conservation enclosure or a very special one-of-a-kind gift we can create something that will make you say "WOW".
