A PROPERLY MADE BOOK

You cannot find off-the-shelf books of this quality anywhere else in the world because no other bindery makes them. These books take months, not weeks or days to produce. 

Made to the very highest standard using the finest quality materials.

Entirely handmade in Scotland by J&J Jeffery, two of the most imortant (and increasingly collectable) craftspeople in world whose work is held all over the world including at the Met Library in New York City.

Made in full leather, blind tooled (embossed, no gold) front and back and edges of the covers with gold tooled corners and spine. An exquisite binding.  

LAYFLAT aka Tightback or Flexible Binding

Due to the traditional, long way round techniques used to make these wonderful books, they open completely flat without any danger of breaking the spine. Most books are case bindings where the book block is glued to the front and rear cover. Ours are a one-piece structure.
