& Box Making

Aquarius is one of the leading book restorers in the United Kingdom

For more than 40 years we have built a worldwide clientele, covering institutions, book dealers, auction houses and private collectors

We have an extensive collection of gold finishing tools covering over 600 years of English, Irish and Continental styles; all applied by hand in twenty three and a half carat gold leaf

Traditional calf marbling and sprinkling is also practised to make restoration and facsimile binding more sympathetic

Specific binding requests can be considered
