The book repair work undertaken by ‘The Bookbindery’
is tremendously varied.
Repairs can be as simple as tipping in a loose page to volumes that require major restoration work.

We repair a lot of family related books and documents - from servicemen's diaries to family histories to photograph albums, and MANY other volumes. Favourite dictionaries, thesaurus, and similar volumes are another type of volume that we repair or rebind regularly.
