Milton Watkins, Bookbinder
Professionalism & Excellence in all aspects of Bookbinding.
With 40 years experience, over this time I have become a reputable and well-known Master Bookbinder, repairing paper from the 13th Century to Restoring books from the 16th Century right up to repairs for current modern day books I have come aross them all. A Specialist in Fine Leather Bindings to simple repairs to a paperback, Custom Bindings are Bound with the skill and experience my clients have come to expect.
I want my customers to be more than just satisfied with my Binding work, which is why I provide an open communication channel throughout the duration of each Binding. My Custom Bindings have been Bound for the Movies & Movie Stars, Pop Stars, Prime Ministers, Prince Charles and even the Pope,
and also George in Karatha Western Australia, with a simple Paperback that was falling apart,
no job is to big or too small.
