    Anyone know a decent bookbinder in nyc for a one off?

    I have some c-prints and b/w rc's that I'd like to have bound in a conventional cloth hardcover. I plan to cold mount them to cotton rag and have cellophane interleaves. Anyone have any ideas about who might do a good job at this in nyc?

    My neighbor, Henry Pelham Burn, does some pretty fancy binding and conservation work for libraries, museums, and private clients. I haven't asked him to do anything myself, but he seems to have a respectable client list and has been doing it for a long time. His e-mail is henrypb3@cs.com, and his phone number is 212-864-0846, and you can tell him I sent you.

    Two places I'd suggest looking:

    The Center for Book Arts

    and the notice board outside Talas. Talas is worth a visit anyway, just to soak in the craftsmanship that surrounds you.

    Best,
    Helen

    hi there

    if it doesn't have to be nyc you might look into portfolio box in pawtucket ri.
    they do custom bookbinding, make portfolio and presentation books as well
    as boxes. their rates are very good, and craftsmanship can't be beat.

    i would also suggest taking classes at the center for book arts too.
    when i was in high school i learned by getting bookbinding merit badge.
    i still make photo books by hand, and it isn't too hard.

    if you want to try a little bit yourself keith smith has written a series on making books
    and the franz zeier book is really good too.

    good luck!

    I recently noticed a bookbinder called Paper Dragon on 26th St. across from Photo Gizzmo, which is 134 W26th. Being in that neighborhood, they might have a photo clientele.
