The Process of Making

Strength and beauty are always at the forefront of our designs. In the end, everything is about creating a book worthy of being a heritage piece for you and your family for generations ahead. Such ambitions leave little room for compromise. 

Me and my father share a passion for historical methods of working, meaning mostly with our hands and various useful handtools. Some of the steps of our hand work include:

  • Creating, folding and cutting paper
  • Sewing the books signatures on strong supports
  • Working the cover boards and reinforcing the book body with all necessary additions
  • Paring and applying high quality leather to cover the book with a beautiful and durable surface
  • Decorating the leather with impressions in blind or in gold leaf
  • Producing silver sheets from which the future fittings and clasps emerge
  • Soldering the individual parts into a complete whole, polishing and patinating the silver
  • Setting precious and semi-precious stones into the fittings
  • Creating the most worthy piece of stationary for your personal thoughts and history
