Welcome to Camel Winter Bespoke Book Binding in Cornwall
Bespoke quality hand bound Books
I have been a photographer for nearly 20 years; it's a fantastic medium to explore both as a technical process and as a democratic way of communicating ideas visually. I initially fell in love with bookbinding quite by accident. I have always had an interest in photo books and over the years collected many monographs of works that I admired. Inspired by many seminal works such as Robert Frank's "The Americans", and Garry Winogrand's "The Animals", I decided that I needed to go beyond merely using digital print options readily available online, and take control of the format like I would a print in the darkroom. I enrolled on a basic bookbinding course with Mark Cockram in London, and slowly my fascination with all things book related began to take hold. From the process of creating a beautiful bespoke handmade object, choosing individual elements and bringing them together into a harmonious whole, to being able to communicate ideas and concepts both visual and written. Books and book binding are an incredible way of sharing, recording memories, and stories, or creating ideas, and so Camel Winter was born.
Camel Winter books are all bespoke individual handmade items using the highest quality materials and traditional techniques to ensure that each book will be unique and stand the test of time. Whether your looking for a luxury journal, or a book made to your own specifications, Camel Winter can hand bind a book to suit your needs.
