Workshop Tour of Arta Cărții — Bookbinding Studio of Mihai Vârtejaru in Bucharest

Welcome to Arta Cărții! Or, at least that’s how the workshop of Mihai Vârtejaru looked like almost three years ago. I planned to share these photos for quite a long time, and when I revisited Mihai’s studio, everything was moved. In the end, I decided to share the images anyway, as the setup is pretty impressive!

Mihai works in Bucharest, Romania. He’s a huge fan of everything used for gold tooling. So if you have some catalogs to share or info on old tools, I’m sure he’ll be quite happy if you reach out to him!

By the way, Arta Cărții translates from Romanian to Book Art or Art of the Book

You can follow Arta Cărții on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Mihai also posts about his other bookish projects on his personal Facebook account.
