All our binding is done by hand in the traditional manner, offering the best skills available. We use the highest quality materials such as; premium quality bookbinding leathers, archival grade cloth, hand made paper, reversible glues, 23 1/2 ct gold for gilding. We also have a large selection of hand tools, some dating back to the 17th century, and nearly all cut by hand.

At Formbys we pride ourselves in offering a friendly, professional service, and will always go the extra mile to ensure that what we produce is of the highest standard.
