Bookbinders of Lewes was established in 1992 as a small hand bindery, specialising in both one-off and limited edition bindings.

Our work includes: thesis and document bindings, albums, boxes, portfolios and sketchbooks, plus fine leather and presentation bindings. These are created in a variety of materials, using traditional and modern techniques. The majority of work is usually done to order, but we do carry a small range of albums, notebooks and sketchbooks, in stock.

We can offer a full repair and restoration service, for cloth, leather and paper bindings. Consultations and estimates are normally free of charge.

Click on Presentation Books to see examples of our fast, reliable and creative digital print binding service. 

We are now offering bookbinding tuition and have spaces in the following classes; 

 Soft leather journal; July 18th, portfolio and binder; May 30th, hard cover sketchbook; April 25th, Japanese binding; May 16th. 

We will be running a new class, First aid for books on March 21st.

We are currently open by appointment only, please contact us to arrange a time to visit.

Please contact us for more information, additional dates or to book a place. Payment will be required in advance.
