To do what is right for the book.
Kranz Books Bindery is creating a world wide community of bookbinders, book artists, conservators, paper artists, printers, collectors and sellers, including all-around book enthusiasts to share information, processes, techniques, as well as tips and tricks of the trade.
Integrity: Doing what is best for the book even when noone is watching. Need to write more Values such as Tradition and Research.
In addition to bespoke and retail hand-made journals, heirloom photo albums, professional portfolio cases, presentation folios, and music composition books, Kranz Books Bindery offers a wide range of conservation and restoration services such as clamshell & single tray conservation boxes, rebacking, paper repair, and much more.
A strong book arts community without limitations imposed by boarders; actively sharing information and comradery is the best way to keep the book arts alive in an ever increasingly modern world.
The bookbinders at Kranz Books Bindery have created a Patreon community to foster global communication, information sharing, and collaboration on all book related arts.
Passing the torch to the next generation of bookbinders and conservators is always on our minds. Making techniques, processes, and tribal knowledge available to the student ensures the continuity of the book arts.
Traditional conservation, restoration, and book bindings. Needs more...better.
Keeping with the intent of the original binder, we follow a non-intrusive conservation over restoration philosophy.
To provide the best bookbinding and conservation services available in the world!
No one person knows everything about bookbinding and conservation. Communication and information sharing are key, there is no better tool than social research.
