Bookbinding is an artistic craft of great antiquity. It is a specialized trade that relies on basic operations of measuring, cutting, and gluing. A finished book might need dozens of operations to complete, according to the specific style and materials.
Meet The Maker
Owner and bookbinder Klaus Ulli Rötzscher was born and raised in Germany. His career began in Leipzig in the 1970s as an apprentice, before serving as a journeyman for four years and earning two master's degrees in bookbinding.
Now, Rötzscher's shop serves as both a working studio and a retail space, where customers can browse Rötzscher's pre-made products — beautiful journals in smooth leather and snakeskin, handsome marbled notepads, elegant portfolios, greeting cards, labels, cases, and seasonal items — or ask for custom-made orders.
Old world hand-craftsmanship at it's finest!! I didn't think that vendor's like this still existed.
