What we’ll do

We'll show you our bookbinding studio and let you feel the materials as we discuss what goes into the craft. You'll see our industrial machines as we walk through the studio. Next you'll choose a type font and deboss your name onto a leather swatch for a unique souvenir. This is a wonderful and important ancient craft that's losing ground in high-tech San Francisco. I hope that together we can…
