Abbey Bookbinding can create the perfect book for you


The Cowbridge Physic Garden asked us to produce a prestigious sponsors book to make an account of some of the people who contributed to the upkeep of the gardens.

To allow the book to open completely flat, pages supplied by us were folded from A2 in half, thread sewn and cut to form an A4 landscape finish. The paper used was a high quality 120gsm stock, ivory and uncoated to allow the best finish for writing on.

The book was covered  in a pentland goat skin leather. Bevelled edges and decorative border and lettering tooled to the front and back cover.

Raised bands and contrasting red leather panels were applied to the spine with lettering and decorative tooling using various hand, brass tools. A slip case was also made to protect the book.
