This week I had the exciting opportunity to visit The The Wyvern Bindery and meet with the owner Mark Winstanley. The Wyvern specializes in bespoke books, boxes and portfolios as well as book restoration and repair services. Located in the heart of London’s traditional printing and bookbinding district, the space is filled with exciting projects, traditional/modern materials and tools and a wonderfully knowledgeable staff. The bindery’s clients range, from personal collectors and antiquarian book dealers to creating props for movies including Game Of Thrones and Harry Potter. Mark trained at the London College of Printing and his enthusiasm for books is inspiring and contagious. My favourite book in the bindery was a ledger with brass edging at the head and tail that weighted almost more than I could lift! I look forward to returning in the future and seeing the exciting and interesting projects The Wyvern Bindery is working on.
