Excellent bookbinder in Bristol

Five stars. Highly recommended.
I asked Nigel at Alfred Harris to make me a buckram-covered box, lettered on cover and spine, for a rare paper-bound book.
Although this was an unusual request, Nigel carefully guided me through the possible options, suggesting design methods, materials and lettering, but leaving the final choices to me.
I am delighted with the finished box, made to the highest possible standard, and a proud addition to my bookshelves.
Completed to deadline and budget.
Nigel is an accomplished exponent of bookbinding, and a pleasure to do business with.
