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.

Bookcloth images – Chelsea Cloth & Arbelave Library Buckram

In the absence of a website I am using my blog for information regarding the materials I offer for sale both here at the bindery and via mail-order.

I will have a price list as a PDF very soon so you can email me and request it to be sent.

Email me if you have any questions – rosemarie@sydneybookbinding.com

For mail order you simply place your order by email, clearly state your postal address and I can let you know what the final cost will be. You will need to pay by EFT (preferred) or send a cheque. Cash of course at the bindery.

Firstly I am listing the bookcloths as here a choice of colour is important.

Here are sample of the Chelsea Cloth & Arbelave Library Buckram. If you click on the image it will give the code underneath. If the code is ending in a 2 this means half metre. Without the 2 means a full metre. We sell in half meters, full metres or a combination of both eg. 1 and 1/2 metres.

The Chelsea Cloth is thinner than the Arbelave and has a linen look surface. It is suitable for the full range of binding work.

Arbelave Library Buckram is a particularly robust cloth and, I like if for students, as you can simply wipe off any PVA that gets on it. It allows any finger marks to be cleaned off a finished book.

More coming very soon
