A selection of the services from Signature Bindings  

One of the most frequent jobs I am asked to do is the repair of a Family Bible. These are often large Victorian books and frequently in state of poor repair, but often hold significant sentimental or historical value for the family.

Book Repairs  
Books are meant to be read and used. Over time they can become damaged, the boards or spine weaken and can become detached, or the sewing of the text block breaks and is in need of repair. Whatever the condition of your book, talk to Signature Bindings about repairing your favourite or treasured volumes.
