Jay's Bookbinding is a family owned business with 62 years of experience.
At the age of 14, I started learning the trade and art of bookbinding.
The bookbinding process is that we receive magazines in issue form and we oversew them into book blockes and put them into hard covers with the title, volume numbers and dates stamped in gold on the spine.
What is Bookbinding?
Bookbinding is a specialized trade that relies on basic operations of measuring, cutting, gluing and involves fastening loose pages together inside a cover to made a book. Bookbinding combines skills from other trades such as paper and fabric crafts, leather work, model making and graphic arts.
The process of bookbinding requires many raw materials such as paper, threads, tape, boards and fabric. We use only quality materials such as quality leather & fine buckram cloth.
"We are thickly layered, page lying upon page, behind simple covers. And love - it is not the book itself, but the binding."
