Camel Winter Blog

Welcome to the first post on the Camel Winter blog. This will hopefully be the first of many talking about work, ideas and happenings at Camel Winter.

Camel Winter (an anagram of Tim Lawrence) was brought to life in 2013 when photographer and lecturer Tim Lawrence decided to have a go at book binding. At the time there was no intention of it going any further, but the binding bug soon took hold and during the festive period of 2013 Camel Winter began in earnest.

Since then Camel Winter has developed in to a small book binding and photography brand exploring binding techniques, edition bindings, commission pieces, repairs and ways of expressing ideas both bound and through the lens of a camera.

In the next few posts will be discussing some of the processes involved in the binding of many of the books in the Camel Winter range.
