About Bookhaven

Peter Leach studied Bookbinding and Paper Finishing at Sydney Technical College with practical training at the New South Wales Government Printing Office. Coupled with periodic service in the Mitchell Library Bindery, he has gained an enviable breadth of knowledge from the experts in the profession of Book Craft, Finishing, Paper Conservation and Book Repair.

These skills, taught by master bookbinders from time immemorial sadly have slowly dwindled over the years and are in real danger of disappearing altogether.

In response to this Peter would like to present a range of high quality hand bound products and conservation services with easy access on line.

Bookhaven offers to its clients a complete restoration service for your much loved family heirlooms, bibles, cherished books and photo albums. In addition, we produce a selection of unique products including Journals, Fine Leather Binding, Photo Books, Folios, Menu Covers, Bill Presenters and Guest Books. Custom or special orders are also very welcome handcrafted to your requirements.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website. At Bookhaven no task is too large too small or too difficult.

We look forward to your enquiries.
