2 Royal bindings by Paul Tronson
My dream is to make the Ancient Book Arts as pleasing to the modern eye as possible but to allow traditional bookbinding to be seen as it truly is.......... an art form. This is achieved by drawing on the inspiration in the styles, skills, materials and techniques of past great Master Bookbinders
Period Fine Bindings re-create the sumptiousness and inspired traditional antiquarian bookbinding of the ages specializing in the scourcing, building, restoring, or/and re-binding of Private Investment Libraries.
As you flip through the pages of my website you will come to the conclusion that condition doesn't really matter at all to me or my clients......who have often told me they would never buy rare books in very poor condition as they thought this level of conservation was impossible! Well it is possible and also affordable!
Period Fine Bindings use unique conservation techniques that do not involve harmful chemicals, solvents or surfactants that compromise the fibres of the paper and medium. All of my formulae are derived from harmless plant extracts unique to my work only, ensuring that badly damaged books are restored to museum quality.....and that they retain their true high end value.
