'[Fine Bookbinding] is a seminal work by a master craftswoman, distilled from a lifetimes teaching; it is a meticulous work of the utmost integrity and a lesson in what craftsmanship truly involves. There is detail and forethought in every step taken.' Sylvie Gokulsing, The Scribe 'a landmark publication written with authority' Graham Stevens, Designer Bookbinders Newsletter June 2010 'For those working alone and without the advantage of a tutor to hand this book will be all but indispensable. I am determined to clear my workspace to make room for it.' Alan Isaac, The Society of Bookbinders Newsletter Number 1 / April 2010 'I recommend Fine Bookbinding to anyone who is ready to learn to bind a book in leather.' Journal of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild
