Our bespoke book services.

Let us introduce Don Hawthorn

He lives and breaths fine quality books, and is a world class expert in books and book production. Our bespoke book service includes advice and consultancy. We will work with our customers as a partner and suggest substrates, formats, dummies and every aspect of creating beautiful fine quality books. We understand the subtlety of what makes a great book; head bands, tabs, rounding and backing, edge foiling and many more considerations.  Some of our projects can take up to 3 years in the making and Don will oversee the entire process.

The sooner we can get involved with your project the better as we can guide you through the whole process from simple ISBN advice to help on finding a publisher or indeed self publishing along with the supply chain management of a published book. We will also help with special effects, textures and the entire look and feel of your book; from paper and board choices, finishing styles, we will guide you through the entire process.
