Workshop Tour of Introligatornia Tylkowski — Bookbinding Studio of Jacek Tylkowski

Everyone loves a good old workshop tour. It’s always interesting to get a sneak peek of how your colleague organized things and how they do the work. So today, we have a chance to visit Introligatornia Tylkowski.

“Introligator” is a “bookbinder” in Polish. So “Introligatornia” stands for the “bindery.” Jacek lives in a village called Komorniki near the Polish city Poznań. His studio is located in his house. He does his projects there and invites students to use the premises.

Jacek’s father founded the bindery in 1980, but Jacek is in charge of the studio since 1991. He’s a member of the Association of Czech Bookbinders (Společenstvo českých knihařů) and the International Association of Masters of the Art of Bookbinding (MDE). His binding recently was highly commended by the judges of the second OPEN • SET international bookbinding competition for his take on Philip K. Dick’s Ubik.

You’ll find more information about Jacek and his bindings on the bindery’s website. You can also follow him and his bindery on Facebook and Instagram.
