Want to produce small quantities of books? Feel confident with a needle and thread? If you’re on a budget hand binding your own books can help keep costs down and result in something much more personal.

 

Take this example from illustrator Eleanor Percival, digitally printed on our KM 8000 press using Munken Pure Rough and hand stitched by Eleanor into a beautifully crafted publication.

 

Want to try something similar? We can advise on papers, proofing, printing, and how to set up your artwork for a binding of your choice. Do get in touch.
