Bookbinding Services

We offer bookbinding services for libraries, designers, private individuals from basic binding to high end binding including repair and conservation of books.

Periodical & Journal Hard Case Binding

Collections of journals and periodicals are prepared and bound as required for you as a library or an individual collector. The material used is Arbelave library buckram as standard but other materials are available. Embossing colours are gold, silver or black.

Individual Bindings

We can offer you a range of services whether it be for the serious collector needing a valuable book restored or someone requiring the simple binding of a set of magazines. Alternatively it might be a personalised present, for example a This is Your Life book, programmes (in sport or music), music scores, magazines (eg. fishing, gardening, motorsport), personal poems or stories, the binding of family histories, etc.

J. S. Wilson & Son, Thesis Binding and Bookbinding

The knowledge of Craft/Thesis Binding has been passed down through generations since 1830 onto current staff, enabling us to offer you the best all-round service possible. The earliest recorded bound and catalogued dissertation held at Cambridge University Library dates back to 1901, and was bound by J. S. Wilson & Son. We can cater for any type of Thesis or Dissertation Binding at our workshop in Cambridge. We can also offer quick turnaround Thesis Binding for last minute deadlines!
