Bindery & Restoration

Where art meets Craft!

Since 1988 Handboekbinderij - Restauratieatelier J.-J. Camps specialises in binding and rebinding, repairing, restoring and conservating books, paper, leather and parchment. We deliver these services on manuscripts, private press books, everyday printing works for musea, archives as well for private clients. Beside these activities we run a antiquarian bookshop where we present our fine bindings, restored bindings and copies of classic designs.
