Bookbinding and Book Restoration
"The trade of a Bookbinder has been ranked among the most difficult of the arts.....
.... The appearance of a book, to a casual observer, seems to require little talent, but if the various subdivisions of the work (which form not less than sixty) are considered, and in the proper execution, of which consists the Art of Bookbinding, it will not be surprising to find how few men have arrived at eminence in it". John Hannett "Bibliopegia" 1831.
Paul Tronson is a Master Bookbinder who specializes in traditional bookbinding and book restoration in the ancient styles of the great masters, with materials that cannot be bought but are hand made using their exacting techniques and formulae.
