The Bindery Staff
Temple Bookbinders of Oxford has been established for nearly twenty years, specialising in the restoration, preservation and re-binding of antiquarian books. With more than one hundred years experience between them, Ian Barnes and his small team of experts are regularly entrusted with repairing and refurbishing old and valuable books, taking a faded, crumbling dog-eared volume and restoring it to its former glory. The team also specialise in slipcases and illustrated drop back boxes, which are made to order.
