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; 

June 2nd Single sheet binding, June 22nd Hard cover sketchbook, July 7th Portfolio and wallet, July 21st Japanese binding, August 4th Soft leather journal, September 1st Hard cover sketchbook, October 6th Single sheet binding, November 9th Japanese binding.

We now also offer Friday drop in sessions when you can come and work on your own project with some supervision.

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