Hello fellow binders,
I am a retired engineer who has taken to bookbinding and repair in later life. I have been learning bookbinding for the past 12 years, by practice and by attending short courses with the Victorian Bookbinders Guild.
I started book repair when books that came into our secondhand bookshop needed attention. I realised that there was a correct way to do the job. Arthur Johnson's Bookbinding Manual was my guide and then I had to find a supplier of materials, and that is when I joined the Vic. Bookbinders Guild. Customers in the shop saw what I was doing and asked me to repair their books. This has grown and the bookselling side of the business is being run down while the bookbinding activity continues to grow, or at least remain as a steady flow.
I hope this website-forum becomes a good source of contacts to whom I can refer customers. I recently did a job for someone in Sydney mainly because I was the only one he could get a response from.

Bye for now

Just thought I should update readers about Mr. Suddaby's Bookshop. It has now closed! I am working through the maze of websites to try and remove references. My website at www.booklovers.com.au will continue for a few more months.
Regards, Arnold Goldman
