Watermark Bindery is a hand bound book bindery, crafting books from the inside with archival chlorine-free interior paper, to the outside decorative papers and high quality book cloth from around the world. All of our books are handmade in our home workshop by the two of us. Our goal is to produce a blank book that is not only beautiful but also functional and made to last. Our books are well used and well loved by those that use them. As a personal touch we sign each book by hand.
