A celebration of craftsmanship


In these days of mass production it's easy to forget how much work is involved in producing something entirely by hand and so we have commissioned six hand bound books, all with hand printed covers, vellum spines and gold tooling.

The people who created this book for us are (in my opinion anyway) two of the most important people in British craft today. What they have achieved in producing the things they do is almost beyond belief. 
As well as this book you can see the papers they create entirely by hand here.
The spine and corners are in goatskin vellum which have been hand-tooled in real gold leaf.

You can probably tell from the brief description that this will not be inexpensive but having seen this prototype, I can promise you that it's worth it. It's a beautiful thing.
