Stepan Chizhov Studying Bookbinding at AAB

Two years ago I decided to start a website dedicated to bookbinding, it was an enjoyable journey but as the days went by I found myself having less and less time to add new posts and maintain the site, this was especially true the past few months where I’ve found myself becoming more absorbed in other projects and so I decided it might be time to start looking for a new owner…

“the importance of this weapon of mass instruction must be considered on a global scale. We live in a world in which men don’t think anymore. They don’t use their imagination anymore because it’s much easier to switch on the television and forget what’s happening in the real world.” – France 24

Americans at work. In an art that is the preservation of all arts. The making of books. These men are masters of their tools from the most primitive instruments to the latest equipment on the machine age. With other craftsman, these are the people that make the pen mightier than the sword.
