Signature Bindings was established by Glenn Malkin in 2008. Based in his bindery in Hornsea, East Yorkshire, Glenn repairs and re-binds books, albums and Bibles, makes new contemporary or traditional style bindings as well as bespoke boxes and slipcases and special commissions. He also creates design bindings - unique and collectable bindings which sit on the cusp between art and books.
All Glenn's work is done entirely by hand using traditional methods and equipment which have remained largely unchanged for centuries. He also runs occasional workshops aimed mainly at beginner and intermediate levels and introducing a wide range of binding styles to hobbyists and binders and has presented talks and demonstrations at bookbinding conferences and other meetings.
He was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2022 and has won numerous awards for his design bindings.
Glenn's work is in collections in the UK and Europe as well as the USA, the Middle East and Australia.
Glenn is always happy to discuss your specific requirements, whether it is a book repair, new binding or other project so please do get in touch.
