Here you'll find some of the more unusual work that we produce, including artworks made entirely from bookbinding materials and discarded book debris, design bindings, work in vellum and secret book boxes ideal for storing small valuables. We are also happy to make props for film and theatre.
Some of the images here relate to an art project by Stewart titled The Art of Lying. This project looked at the everyday lies people tell.
