About Us

We've been making books in our family-run Edinburgh Bindery since 2010. Happily based in Scotland, we love Scottish materials. We specialise in tweed and tartan-covered books and albums, sourcing and buying in your family tartan for your special album or book. Our Bespoke Service also includes different colour and personalisation choices for our bookcloth, and marble and leather books, including printing your personalisation on bookcloth, or foil-embossing it on any material.

Every book is personal to us, whether we're making a personalised recipe binder for an individual customer or 200 hundred tweed notebooks for the Scottish Government or orders for retailers. Ask us for our wholesale prices.

We love books in all their guises and are always looking to add to our collection.  Using traditional bookbinding techniques, we like to include a vintage look and feel to our books while adding our own special twist. Our customers like them too! Take a look at our reviews.

If you would like a bespoke book or album made, have questions about our products or delivery times, contact us today by email sharon@thehandboundbookcompany or call +44 (0)7950 970024. We'd love to hear from you.
