The Idle Bindery
The Idle Bindery is a small, artisan bindery with a focus on producing quality, handmade photo albums and guestbooks; a passion born out of my love of illustration, story-telling, paper and books.
Every page is measured, hand-torn and sewn by myself, using traditional techniques and methods that have been perfected over hundreds of years of binding. Beautiful Japanese papers and cloths are then selected for the covers.
A collection of ready-made albums are available on my website and I also specialise in custom-made albums.
In this increasingly digital age I feel there’s something quite lovely about a traditional album, particularly for a special occasion. My aim is always to create beautiful but functional books, albums that can be treasured and shared with others down the line.
