It seems that there are more and more skilled bookbinders lately. Perhaps I just hear about them more.
Whichever it is, I've found one that may interest many of you. It is called Monk's Bookbinding
. His website
With over 16 years of experience we specialize in old world hand bookbinding and book restoration. Bibles, cookbooks, antique leather bindings and yesterday's paperbacks all find their way to our workbench.
Joseph Ramsey, the bookbinder, learned and perfected his craft during the 11 years he spent as a Benedictine monk. During his years as a monk and afterwards as a bookbinder in Chicago he repaired or rebound literally thousands of books. Now he has set up a small bindery in historic Ellensburg, Washington where he lives with his family.
Let us repair or rebind your most treasured books and we will add centuries to their lifetime.
Look through the pictures of his work. For those looking to have a Bible rebound in a historically accurate style, he appears to be a great choice. He also has a Facebook page
. If you have or had something rebound by him, please leave a comment.
