Q: How much do your books cost?
The price of a book or box depends on the individual project, but as a rough guide, my books start at €200. This includes a design consultation in person or on Skype where we will discuss what style of piece you are looking for and also the budget you wish to work to. I will then do some rough sketches and once you are happy with the design, I will make your bespoke piece.
Q: How do I place my order?
Please visit the How to Order page and fill in the form. If you use Pinterest, you can also create a board of books you like and can share it with me. I will contact you within 2 working days to discuss what you have in mind.
Q: How long will it take to make my piece?
Once your order has been finalised and all the design elements agreed upon, it takes 4 weeks to complete.
Q: How can I pay?
I accept payment through Paypal.
Q: Do you have any ready-made books to buy?
I don’t have any ready-made books to buy off the shelf, but if there is a particular book on my site that you like, I can make you a similar one, no problem! This will also take 4 weeks to make.
Q: Are your products guaranteed?
Yes. Assuming you take good care of it, I proudly stand over any product I have created. All my materials – papers, pastes, glues and board – are acid-free and archival, ensuring that your book lasts a lifetime.
Q: I don’t live in Ireland – can I still order a book?
Yes! Ideally we can chat on Skype to discuss your unique book, or we can talk by phone or email.
Q: Do you have a mailing list?
Yes! If you subscribe to my mailing list, you will receive occasional updates on new bookbinding projects, events and news.
Q: Do you give classes or workshops in bookbinding?
Yes, I give bookbinding workshops at various venues around Ireland. Sign up to my mailing list to find out more.
