About Us:

The Book Craftsman is a real old-fashioned bookbinding and restoration studio operated by a real old fashioned bookbinder and located in southern California between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. No automated, mass-production equipment here - only vintage and authentic traditional bookbinding tools and equipment. All work is done by hand, just as it has been done for hundreds of years, using techniques passed down through generations of fine binders. Modern innovations are embraced where they matter, in the use of archival, acid free papers and conservation-quality materials. 

The traditional bookbinding services available include custom design bookbinding, rebinding of books in new covers, durable and elegant book restorations, unobtrusive repairs, and preserving collectible books and magazines.
