Sydney Bookbinding

Welcome to my Bookbinding Blog

The making of books, the teaching of bookbinding and the association with other bookbinders and book artists has become the focus and passion of my life. Bookbinding has many aspects and we debate a lot about the precise definitions of various aspects but, working with our hands within this discipline, challenging our skills and creativity is intriguing, frustrating and exciting.

My name is Rosemarie Jeffers-Palmer, I am a Sydney (Australian) bookbinder and tutor. Most of my teaching now is either as a guest tutor or private students here in my new bindery. I will be conduction a special workshop for Waverly Council in November this year just in time for you to  make some special gifts. Information under the ‘Classes’ Category.

My bookbinding work covers repair and restoration, new design bindings, box making and lots of special projects.

For many years I have been a source of material for hand bookbinders so please contact me if you are looking for bookbinding supplies. I sell book cloth and other material in small lengths. These materials are listed in the Amazing Paper website – Category – Sydney Bookbinding Supplies

This blog is a point of contact with interested people. Here I can share with you some of the bookbinding work I am involved with and what my students are doing.

My own work is mostly in the area of Designer Bindings and occasionally Artists’ Books

I am co-owner of Amazing Paper, our speciality paper shop here in St Peters, but I am busy in my bindery here also in St Peters and Kevin looks after Amazing Paper.
