In 2017 we celebrate our 20th anniversary!
Our jubilee offer: € 20,- discount on every course, workshop or masterclass in 2017.
On bindingmaterials you buy with us: 20% discount.

We are a artisanal bookbindery, established in Blokker, The Netherlands, since December 1997.
Our specialism is making one of a kind books or small edition
s for special occasions, thesis and graduation books, familybooks, collector books etc.
We also teach in our own bindery for anyone who wants to learn this beautiful craft.


Bookbinding is a craft alive that is still developping and it has lot of opportunities to bind your book into a unique and handmade product.
The design, the materials and the binding are determinative for the result.
We help you choose the materiales and binding. We only use materials of good quality so your book can last a lifetime.
We can also produce a matching box, slipcase or other form of book /document protection.


If you are planning to print your own familybook, poems, thesis or dissertation, please contact the bookbinder first! We are happy to provide you with free advice for the binding before printing. After printing we love to bind your book.
If needed we have a graphical designer available who can do the layout of your book.

Binding classes

A second masterclass with Pop-up bookartist Paul Johnson in November. A few places left.

In the bindery we organise courses and workhops for beginners and experienced binders in groups of max. six people, so there is enough attention for everyone. We also teach on location for schools, companies, organisations and private groups.
Since September 2011 we organise master classes with reputable and international well known and respected guestteachers. See our agenda in the binding classes agenda.

During master classes we organise, if possible, a Meet & Greet moment with the guest teacher.
These Meet & Greets are free for everyone who is interested and are organised in cooperation with Elbel Libro in Amsterdam.
