Milton Watkins, Bookbinder

Master 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.

 

Family Bible Restoration

This video is a High Speed Video I put together in 2011, I am Custom Binding a New Cover for this old Family Bible that did not have one, well not much was left, after sitting in an open shed for 40 plus years.


What is not on the video is the repair of the text block (the pages) many page repairs and resewing of signatures and relining the spine the traditional way using cheese cloth and mull etc.
