Welcome to Camel Winter, traditionally made books hand bound in Cornwall. We specialise in creating one of a kind books inspired by traditional craftsmanship. Our books are handcrafted by book binder, Tim Lawrence, who mixes traditional bookbinding methods with contemporary design to create a range of unique books that are made to last.
Tim came to realise his love of bookbinding whilst teaching his photography students how to create their own hand bound photobooks. Showing his students how traditional craftsmanship could be used to create engaging and contemporary books gave Tim the drive to understand more about the craft, influencing his lessons and the work he creates today.
