Friday Night Flicks: Bookbinding

Friday Night Flicks hasn’t featured a bookbinding video for a while. This video, filmed, edited, and directed by Amin Safaripour, is a lovely portrait of a skilled bookbinder at work. The binder has obviously been at his job for a while: I held my breathe when he glued the boards to the leather without measuring the hinge spacing.



Perhaps you will be inspired to undertake some insanely ambitious bookbinding this weekend.

    I would like to know if you are able to make a book out of my poetry? How much you charge per copy? They would be gifts for my family. I live in Southern California so I am not sure also how much extra for shipping costs but I have been searching for a way to put them in a book and I would love it to be authentically made.

      Hi Amanda,

      I don’t do that kind of custom binding work. Try checking on the internet for binders in your area. I am sure you can find a binder in California to do the job. Failing that, there are on-line companies that do some nice work.
      Good luck with the project!
