Books n Boxes is for those who appreciate beautiful stationery. Each and every book or box I create has been made with love, using time honoured, traditional methods and quality materials.

“Ken, thank you for such an organised, fun and truly inspirational day of bookbinding instruction. Although we never felt rushed we accomplished so much! All the small tricks you showed us make the difference between a useful book and a beautiful book”

“The introductory workshop on bookbinding and repair was excellent. While being thoroughly enjoyable and interesting, it also proved to be very good from an educational perspective – I really did feel that I learned a lot about the subject. (The tea and cake was very good too.) I do now feel that, once I have sourced a few basic tools and materials, I would be able to make a start on my own, which is a fine result from a one-day workshop. You also very kindly helped point us in the direction of possible suppliers, which really helps.”
