An excerpt from the book….
Stepping into Bernard Middleton’s Book Bindery, in the basement of his four story house in Clapham, London is like ambling into a workshop of the 1960’s. The front room holds the Victorian paper cutter and shelves and shelves of tooling equipment. The room is lit gently by the bay window and the essence of tools, gold leaf, and old paper, wafts across the space. The back room holds the leathers, end papers and a sewing bench. Pungent leather and evaporated chemicals stroll on my nose.
