Fine Book Binding

"We are very pleased with the manner in which you bound all the copies of fourteen years of our newspaper in those excellent blue volumes. They occupy an honoured place in our library."

Rasmussen Bindery was established in 1978 by Holger Rasmussen, a master European bookbinder.

We are known for the superior quality of our bindings using top quality materials, acid-free papers and adhesives. Our skilled bookbinders ensure archival quality, well-constructed books and fair pricing.

Books can be 1/4, 1/2 or full-bound in cloth, paper or leather. They can have marbled paper endsheets and headbands top and bottom.

The covers can be plain, foil-stamped and personalized with names or stamped with company logos. Complete sets of books can be rebound in cloth or leather and gold-tooled on the covers and spines.

Our books can be sewn or European Fan Glued. The choice of binding will depend on the paper chosen and customer preference.

The books, magazines and other materials we bind include:

Our old foil press is one of many original machines and hand tools we employ daily.

Gold tooling — using gold tooling wheels dating back two centuries — can be used to decorate a book cover or box.
