Item details

Vintage Paper Co Bookbinding Starter Kit
This kit contains the basic tools you'll need to make a book at home. All of the tools are of the highest quality and as used in any professional bindery.

1x Traditional Bookbinding Bone Folder - made with genuine cattle bone. Use this to fold, crease, burnish, smooth, poke, tease, push and pull! These are perhaps the most widely used of all tools in bookbinding and are great for all paper crafts. These are far superior to their plastic or wood counterparts.

1x Traditional Bookbinding Clicker Awl - perfect for making holes in paper, leather, card and cloth.

6x Bookbinding Needles - You will receive 3 Large Bookbinding Needles and 3 Standard Bookbinding Needles meaning you will have the perfect selection for all gauges of bookbinding threads from lightweight to heavyweight. These are the industry standard for hand bookbinding and are made of nickle-plated steel, they're very strong and will last a long time before they need to be replaced.

Bookbinding Thread - 20 metres of strong waxed linen thread, especially manufactured for the craft of bookbinding. This is our medium gauge (25/3) thread which is great for most weights of paper. 20 metres should be enough to get you started and to make a book or two.
