Bookbinding and Rebinding

Spink & Thackray has been binding and rebinding books, documents, periodicals and journals for more than 120 years and it is the product that we have built our name and reputation on.

Our bookbinding and rebinding services allow us to cater to a wide range of organisations, from libraries and universities to museums, galleries, private collectors and more.

We also offer our services to individuals and can bind anything from comic book collections and magazines to music scores, family documents and letters.

Bookbinding and rebinding is undertaken by our experienced and skilled craftsmen and craftswomen, many of whom have been with us for more than decade.



We use specialised bookbinding equipment, including singer sewing machines, to create products of distinction that are guaranteed to stand the test of time.

Of course, books and bound documents can and do suffer from wear and tear, which is why we also provide rebinding services to help bring damaged and tired books back to life.

Thank you for restoring our family copy of Fox’s Journal. You have made it again a beautiful object in its own right. Every one who has seen it is delighted with it.

Craftsmanship is everything.

The Limehouse Golem Film Props

We had the opportunity to work on a few book props for the film The Limehouse Golem. The film follows Bill Nighy’s character John Kildare as he investigates a serial killer who has left notes about the murders inside a Book of ‘Collected Essays by Thomas De Quincey’.


Rebinding is a highly specialised process and requires incredible care and attention to ensure the original binding is removed without damaging the pages contained inside.

Our rebinders are the best in the business and have the skill and experience required to trim pages, rebind, recover and foil block any type of book, ledger or collection of documents.

So whether you are looking to bind documents for the first time, or revitalise an original book, ledger, journal or bound document, Spink & Thackray and our team of specialists is here to help.
