Fine Bookbinding & Book Restoration
copyright © Andrew Sims 2014
Andrew established his bindery in 2010 in Mamhilad, South Wales. This followed a 5 year period working with Trevor Lloyd, one of the world's foremost book restorers and period binders, in historic Ludlow, England.
Prior to this, Andrew was funded by the Welsh Assembly Government to train for a year with Maureen Duke, who is amongst the craft’s most revered teachers.
Andrew’s passion for period bookbinding continues to flourish as he constantly strives to expand his knowledge and experience of historic bookbinding styles, and to add to his gold finishing tool collection.
In a former life, Andrew worked as a chemist in the pharmaceutical and hazardous waste disposal industries.
