Ludlow bookbinders are steeped in the finest traditions of the world renowned.
Based in the beautiful Shropshire town of Ludlow, Paul Kidson and his team have over 30 years’ experience in finest traditions of English Craft book binding.
They source their papers from Nepal, Japan, Italy, France & Germany and of course English hand marbled papers.
Their belief is that their leather bound books, properly looked after, will last for generations.
We produce a deluxe version of a number of our book titles. These are hand bound, generally in soft calf-skin, although we do have one or two where smooth linen has been selected. For ‘Great Cars’ we liaise with the car’s owner to choose the colours, which are usually the car’s current (or sometimes most famous) livery.
The book is then bound by one of Paul’s team in the selected leather, and a hand crafted grey cloth slipcase is created. The page edges are gilded, and, as a finishing touch, each book carries an embossed reproduction of the chassis number on the front cover.
Limited to 100 copies per book, these really are things of great beauty, and are fantastic for classic car book collectors.
