Kenneth Newell - Craft Bookbinder

In my bindery in Kilkeel, Co. Down, I take great care in preserving the traditional craft of hand bookbinding. Working entirely by hand I restore and rebind books and bibles, create new bespoke bindings, and make boxes and slip cases to protect valuable books.  Whether it's a book that is worth money or one that is of sentimental value, every effort is made to ensure its restoration to a usable and beautiful condition. 

Personalized Approach

Excellence and Professionalism

In the bindery restoration and rebinding would be almost impossible without a good range of hand tools and equipment. From the humble bone folder to the finely engraved brass finishing tools, we have an extensive collection of the "tools of the trade". 

Quality and Beauty

A beautiful book starts with beautiful materials. Using the finest quality leather along with hand-made marbled papers and other top-quality book cloths, ensure that your book will not only look good but will last for many years to come
