Other Services from Orchid Press
Thailand has long been recognized as the source of some of the finest
hand-craftsmanship in Asia. With low overhead costs, coupled with a long
tradition of creativity and design excellence, labour intensive work such
as fine bookbinding is a natural for the dexterous craftsmen of Thailand.
Orchid Press is pleased to offer a hand bookbinding
service to bibliophiles worldwide. No order is too large or too small—we
will be happy to bind a single volume or your entire library…
Bind the treasures of your library in the finest genuine
calf leather, or traditional Thai raw silk cloth…all at a fraction
of the cost of such craftsmanship in the West (typical savings are in
the order of 50 to 65 percent).
Trained in the exacting European traditions of hand
bookbinding, our binders offer a wide variety of finishes, including marbled
or other handmade end-papers, a silk ribbon bookmark, and gold stamped
spines to your specifications.
Fine hand-craftsmen, of course, cannot be rushed. Be
prepared to wait several weeks as our binders painstakingly and lovingly
rebind your volumes.
Write to us now for a quotation, providing the dimensions
of the book(s) you wish to bind, and material and style preferences.
