Mit fogunk csinálni?

set up type, stamp your tag. Learn the art of Bookbinding

We'll show you our bookbinding studio and let you feel the materials as we discuss what goes into the craft. You'll see our industrial machines as we walk through the studio. Next you'll choose a type font and deboss your name onto a leather swatch for a unique souvenir. This is a wonderful and important ancient craft that's losing ground in high-tech San Francisco. I hope that together we can preserve the experience of printing and reading a handmade book.

master bookbinder with 35 years of experience. I own Cardoza-James Binding—one of the city's few traditional bookbinding businesses. I hope to help keep the craft alive by sharing it with others.

Gabi was a wonderful teacher and clearly passionate about his craft. He shared many interesting personal stories about his past bookbinding projects, answered every single one of our questions, and had a great sense of humor. We loved that he taught us techniques that we can easily do at home without any special equipment. I wish that the experience was more of a hands on workshop where every guest could bind their own book from start to finish, as opposed to just Gabi demonstrating the process. However, I understand that this would be difficult given the limited physical space.

This experience was great! We learned about Gabi's experience as a bookbinder and how the business has changed over time, and got to see all the specific steps that go into making a book. Would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a unique way to spend an afternoon!

Gabi was a remarkable host. My teammates and I attended this Bookbinding experience as part of a work team bonding activity, all of us being book and craft lovers. I was able to coordinate with Gabi to make this experience specific to our group of artists and authors, and also work out a keepsake (paid for separately) as part of the activity and it was so special. As a host, Gabi takes you through an intimate tour of the history of the business and the nuances in bookbinding as a craft. From the materials, to process, to describing the ways that custom bookbinding and foil stamping can elevate an experience (explaining his clientele), he gave us a newfound appreciation for a specialized craft in ways we never anticipated. He was able to draw connections to how his craft related to each of ours, and also connected to each of us individually to share that even though its a specialty, all of us are capable of doing it ourselves! Gabi was the opposite of elitist when it came to sharing his craft with us—rather, he made us all feel like artists in our own right, and also described the ways that the process is beautifully imperfect. Best of all, he explained how we can take translate each of the steps into things we can do at home to bind our very own books.

Book binding is a very interesting process, you need very specialized machinery to see the industrial side of it. I believe the machines you will see and use at this shop are one of a kind, very recommended
