Alan Isaac Rare Books

Oxford Bookbinders

We provide our Bookbinding Services to wide variety of clients from academics, artists, authors, colleges and students to general readers and those of all ages passionate about books and their care.

Our work is undertaken largely by hand with only limited use of mechanical equipment. The materials we use – leather, linen cloth, paper and thread – are traditional and chosen for their aesthetic and tactile qualities as well as their durability and suitability for purpose.

On the following pages we have listed further details about some of the kinds of work that we do but it is by no means exhaustive. If you can not find what you are looking for here, or if you have any questions about the nature of the work that we do, please get in touch.
